CONCEPT
SHIiKAKU = 四角, 視覚, 視角, 死角 is a Japanese homophone that translates to "square", "visual", "optic angle" as well as "blind spot". Embracing these themes and variations, SHiKAKU07 creates light symphony by the presence of a viewer in real time. SHiKAKU 07 is a unique "seeing sound " experience by public participation.

SHiKAKU 07 introduces to public a new way of experience the installation by surprise. It is a new art that public has to participate and interact. It is not like a traditional form of installation, observe art, that public interact one way. Public participation will be a part of the installation. Inspired by Zen Garden structure, SHiKAKU 07 transform old idea and stricture require to sit, meditate, and observe, into a new digital, an active garden, SHiKAKU 07 that uses LED lights and sound with new technology by public collaborative activation.

四角: Square structure
SHiKAKU 07' structure is inspired by Japanese Zen garden, Karesansui. It is a "dry landscape" garden, that creates arrangement of rocks, water, moss, tree and bushes and uses sand to create a universe. SHiKAKU 06 as a Digital Zen garden presents LED strips hanging from the ceiling to the wall as a tree and bushes, a cube like LED bars structure as rocks and public walking through the structure as water. There will be 2 set of 1-2m LED light cube like structures with 10 sets of 2-6m LED light strip over it. Public will be free to walk around the structures.

視覚: Visual
SHiKAKU 07' s experience is "seeing sound" and public will be a part of creation. Visual effect will be synchronized with sound.
Depend on where public stand, their audio visual experience will be different with 6 channel speakers.

視角: Optical angle
SHiKAKU, Square structures are 2 cube like installations. Combination of Led lights create illusion of many different patterns of cube in the dark space.

死角: Blind spot
Unexpected light and sound experience will happen how public walk through the installation. Exposure of strong LED lights will appear as a unexpected afterimages.

USER EXPERIENCE
When no one is in the space, there will be very minimum background sound from 6 speakers in darkness. There will be 2 cubes like installation standing parallel structure that public can activate LED lights and 6 channel sound in the dark space. Only way to observe and experience SHiKAKU 07 is walking around and be part of the installation. A sensors built into the structures create unlimited variations of light symphony.
