This video is a prototype for the Liquid Light installation being developed by Luke Hespanhol, Mela Sogono and Goldy Wu for the Grid Gallery, Sydney CBD, as part of the Master of Interaction Design and Electronic Arts, University of Sydney.

The prototype will be featured at the Urban Realities & Augmented Play exhibition, launched on Thursday 9 June 2011 at the Wilkinson Building, University of Sydney. The event is a collaboration between The School of Design at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), the Design Lab at the University of Sydney (USYD) and New Media Curation.

The artwork represents people being connected by their glowing auras through shining energy halos gliding through ripples of water. Every now and then, glimpses of enlightenment are materialised in a burst of blinding white light, only to fade again, in an endless continuum.

It has been created with Processing and Xbox Kinect, as well as making use of a light projector, audio speakers and water mister.
