Ashley Turner's totemic creations for WOMAD 2013.
Mulk collaborated with Ash to bring lighting and interactivity to the totems.
Metamorphosis I takes rotational data from Cusp and a video signal from a webcam above to generate lighting chases and kaleidoscopic imagery on its embedded monitors.
Metamorphosis II during the day receives audio input to generate bubbles from the top of the totem, guiding interactivity with a Mulk-made animation of a bubble wand on-screen. By night users interact with a webcam to generate kaleidoscopic mandalas on screen and step the totem through the phases of it's metamorphosis, eventually erupting with smoke through the orifices of Fane Flaws' characters at the top of the totem.
