WAVE (2018) - squidsoup project.

First commissioned for Salisbury Cathedral.

A wave of sound and light washes toward the cathedral doors; sustaining, refreshing, cleansing and bringing renewal.

Wave consists of some five hundred individual suspended orbs, points of presence brought to life through light and sound, that collectively create a resonant and dynamic audiovisual experience - a sustaining space within which each orb resonates in changing harmonies to create an enveloping and entrancing physical presence.

The work continues Squidsoup’s ongoing explorations and obsession with elemental themes, particularly water.

Each orb in the wave is a sensate unit consisting of LED lights, a speaker and a microcomputer, with movement sensor and wireless connectivity.
Together they create a walkthrough immersive experience; 500 points of light, 500 speakers, acting in choreographed harmony to create a series of emotive and enticing, sensual immersive environments – a sanctuary in this crazy world.

A squidsoup project.
