This installation uses lasers, projectors, and two different video output devices. Images of light are outputted from the respective devices and projected on the wall surface.
The illuminated images constantly and dynamically change shape. As the two light images move around, they interact with each other as if they were real objects with mass. They influence each other like they are attempting to confirm the other's existence.
Physical rules of the relationship between objects and light are also embedded in the wall. An image of light, even without physical substance, creates a slight depth in the space and tells the viewer about the existence of a new layer.
Für den Neubau des Kunstmuseums Basel haben die Ingenieure und Mediengestalter von iart gemeinsam mit den Architekten Christ & Gantenbein einen Lichtfries entwickelt, der die Backsteinfassade des Baukörpers subtil bespielt. Die Filmarbeiten für dieses Video fanden während der Testphase des Frieses im Frühjahr 2016 statt.
This is another variation of Hybrid Forms (vimeo.com/134814340), but highlighting the type of each cell in different colors. Each simulation has 2 different base cell types, one shown in green and the other in blue. All cells have a proportion of the properties of these two cell types, with newly born cells inheriting some of the properties of the parent cell and some of the properties of the immediate neighbors. By highlighting the cell types in different colors you can see the different structures that each cell type creates, and how they contribute to the overall structure. The two cell types effectively compete for space as the form grows, with one cell type tending to dominate the final form in the last stages of each simulation.
This video is a slight variation on work that I originally presented at the 2015 European Conference on Artificial Life.
I would like to thank Max Cooper for permission to use 'Teotihuacan Part 2' for the accompanying music.
Komorebi is a Japanese word to describe the light and sunshine filtering through the leaves of trees. Luxate is an improvisational augmented space design to explore interactive light beyond the screen. It is an exploration of the infinite and non screen based projector based augmentations. Exploring the qualities of the projected light beam in the three-dimensional space created by digital video projectors and hazing machines, we create a reactive environment between the dance performer and the perception of a light field.
Inspired in the sculptural exploration of light by Anthony McCall, Sebastian Huber, Jayson Haebich and nonotak, among many other light surgeons.
