Plasma_flow is a spectacular large-scale interactive projected installation and uses adaptive surround sounds to reinforce the user experience of interacting with a cloud of highly charged particles. The installation will emulate a Fluid/Particle system and is accessible for real time interactive via a series of Infrared light sensitive cameras, capturing input from participants as they traverse the space. Their traces will be projected as a swirling storm of particles and dyed fluids in response to their movements. The configuration is designed to be site specific and response to the unique qualities of the Cleland Stores at the Rocks commissioned by VIVID 2012 Lights On!

What is Collabor8
Collabor8 (C8) is an initiative formed by Ian McArthur in 2003 to establish a basis for online collaboration between art and design students and practitioners at universities in Australia and China. Through research the intent of C8 has expanded to encompass multidisciplinary collaborative online and blended practice with particular focus in the area of cross-cultural communications. Recent projects have emphasised students working together in collaborations that span urban, cultural and virtual territories.
C8 typically consists of online lectures, briefs, discussion forums and galleries allowing design students to conceptualise individually and in groups, discuss and compare their ideas and display design concepts and solutions. The students collaborate in cross-cultural teams with the objective of finding new ways of working together online. Through respect of each other’s cultural background and meeting the challenges of working in different geographic locations to create solutions to a brief C8 emulates in an intensive mode real world practices in the global creative industries.
The online components of this project are supported by The Omnium™ Research Group who provide software development and technical support using Omnium™ Software.

C8 has consistently engaged in advancing insights pertinent to a matrix of cultural and communication issues and considerations encountered during online and face-to-face studio interactions between different groups of design students studying in China and Australia.
