Dallas Symphony Orchestra's - SOLUNA Festival - Array
The event was titled "Array" and the work proposed was a multi-sensory, "Sun" that brought the aesthetic force of kaleidoscopic beauty to the viewer in this immersive experience. Its intrinsic nature is a euphoric abundance of colors and forms that elevate perception in our sensory dimensions. An origami inspired sculpture serves as the projection surface for animated sequences of geometric shapes and particle animation that are ever changing. Initially a bespoke musical soundscape serves as the prompt to continually trigger images on screen. Geometric patterns and dynamic fractal tessellations are algorithmically generated in real-time through the soundscape and with the help of viewers also. A Kinect camera faces centrally downwards from above while translating the viewer’s movements to the “Sun”. When stimulated by the presence of bodies and motion the speed and duration of images shift and transform. Every gesture of the viewer acts as energy that transforms the visualized patterns. A multi channel sound system integral to this installation and provides a heightened sensory experience.
Matt Brooks, aka VJ Anomolee, was my collaborator in this proposal by developing visual kaleidoscopic elements and coding interactivity in Unity Game Engine. See movie.
