Projections by Aakash Nihalani (aakashnihalani.com) featuring Helen Rogers (helenrogers.net)
In this series, cubic designs are projected onto a white wall, creating an interactive canvas for the viewer. A sensor picks up the viewer’s hand movement and the projected design reacts in real time using coding and motion software. This exchange between the artwork and the viewer is essential in order to illuminate the underlying personality and sculptural quality of the work. The result is an infinite variation in composition, as unpredictable and original as the viewer. As with my street installations, these works not only invite human interaction but cannot fully exist without it, ultimately revealing as much of the individual as the piece itself.
