Documentation of the first public exhibition of the Ocean of Light hardware, Surface, at the Kinetica Art Fair, London, February 2010. Surface uses minimal visuals and sound to evoke the essence of character and movement. Autonomous entities engage in a playful dance, negotiating the material properties of a fluid surface.
Ocean of Light uses a 3D grid of individually addressable LED lights to evoke presence and movement in a physical space that participants can walk through and view from any angle.
The Ocean of Light project is a collaborative research venture, led by Squidsoup.
