I was lucky enough to collaborate with musician/artist Beth Fleenor to create an immersive, three-dimensional experience at Chapel Performance space as part of the Wayward Music Series.Â Following Beth’s concept, I tried to create a series of spaces for the audience to move through, representing the interior,Â both physical and mental/spiritual.
For the physical interior, I created a playable installation, consisting ofÂ two crossing, 30 foot long curtain walls of sheer fabric, onto and through which I projected custom visual content.Â The details of my visual compositionsÂ were mediated by a sound responsive interface, which I built to allow both hands-on playing and stand alone installation modes. Â While Beth performed her compositionsÂ for about 2 hours, I switched off between letting the system find it’s own way through the material, and actually putting my hands on the controls and performing in real time.
The mental/spiritualÂ aspect was represented by three spots of highly distorted figurative video, made from found home movies and my own incidental iphone shots. Â These spots moved in and out of legibility/focus with the dynamics of the music.
Features: detailed projection mapping, sound responsiveness.
