Universal Everything / Radiohead – Polyfauna An experimental collaboration between Radiohead, Nigel Godrich, Stanley Donwood and Universal Everything The studio was commissioned to develop Polyfauna as a free, exploratory audiovisual app, born out of Radiohead’s The King of Limbs sessions and the sketchbooks of Stanley Donwood. Set to a lunar calendar, the mysterious, immersive app is brought to life through touch and offers a unique and different set of experiences and encounters each time it’s used. A pioneering new collision between digital art and the world of apps, the collaboration sees the creation of abstracted, expanded and exploded versions of audio and visual work by the band.

It takes its name (Cave of the Hands) from the stencilled outlines of human hands in the cave, but there are also many depictions of animals, such as guanacos (Lama guanicoe ), still commonly found in the region, as well as hunting scenes. The people responsible for the paintings may have been the ancestors of the historic hunter-gatherer communities of Patagonia found by European settlers in the 19th century.
