Immersion Grade refers to a type of protective coating that seals a surface from external conditions and weathering. This suggests the enabling of interaction with foreign objects without the loss of structural integrity and/or identity. Through expanded thinking on cinematic environments, Immersion Grade addresses the materiality of a moving image, the climatic qualities of cinematic space, and the contingency of the viewing experience. Sato's expanded use of "hydrographics" and the live decay of a moving image and Moore's experiments with inversions of screen, image, and ambient air overlap to create material and immaterial agitations.
