Friction Laser & Sound Interactive Installation

Laser & Sound Interactive Installation. Friction is a audiovisual instrument, where the audience is able to manipulate sound and visuals with hand gestures. It is composed by a structure of two frames where two face-to-face laser beams create tri-dimensional shapes.

Constellations Geometric Light Projection

CONSTELLATIONS Audio visual installation for public spaces, produced by Studio Joanie Lemercier.

Moon phases rotating kinect light installation

[#define Moon_ ] consists of 9 rotating kinect light installations. It presents different postures of moon shape, exerting new sense experiences. The audience is allowed to explore through various ways of looking and bring curiosity to the installation by watching from different angles. By thinking of the science spirit, once again, viewer can define and understand the concept of this work of their own.

Nervous Structure interactive installation

Notional Field is an interactive installation that consists of a wall-mounted sculpture containing hundreds of vertical and parallel lines made of elastic cord that are projected upon with a computer-generated, interactive animation of a similar number of lines. The motion of these projected lines is ruled by a simulation, which makes them act like soft ropes, and said motion is influenced by a viewer’s movements as interpreted by a computer that surveys the scene through a video camera. Thus, the physical gestures of the participant are translated into virtual forces that affect the computer-generated lines, while the physical strings of the sculpture remain motionless. The piece revolves around the idea of interface, which is interpreted as the point of contact between two different entities, and is displayed in the work in several ways: between the viewer and the piece (a human/computer interface); between the real and the virtual (the physical structure and its relationship with the projected structure); between the foreground and the background (as the projection interferes with the sculpture).

Fluxion sound and light installation

Fluxion made of circles, squares, and lights is represented by a combination of songs made of Sine waves and very short cut audio signals. The broken tiny sounds that emerge from Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, the first song, move the Fluxion's lights, which show the circular stars floating in space and twinkle. Fluxion, 2015, Sound and Light Installation | Live performance

Gmunk + TrueCar L.E.D.

The Santa Monica Pier is a magical place. The sprawling ocean. The Ferris Wheel. The sights and sounds of the people there. There’s a familiarity to it, a closeness, and this feeling is only magnified during its annual Twilight Concert Series. This concert series is all about community, and Munkowitz and the team wanted to tap into that. They wanted to bring the space to life through a lighting universe where everything is interconnected, evoking a sense of warmth and tranquility, drawing the entire audience closer together.The resulting experience is to be driven by the attendees, their participation expressed visually as data in the form of vibrant pulsing lights, creating a unified visual language that permeates through the entire pier. It’s an immersive, interactive environment that not only will make the attendees feel that they experienced something special, but that they shared something with others, too. Just as TrueCar uses user data to price cars, we use our audience’s data to drive this unique lighting experience. THE TREATMENT Our unifying theme is community, imagining vibrant images of fire and light synced with the signature sounds from the concert stage. The experience harkens back to a campfire, where we would stay warm and bonded close together in front of the flame, feeling like we were part of a larger group. This warming entity would comprise a Lighting Universe which would create one cohesive experience, with every light acting as one pulse, driven by the Centerpiece... The Centerpiece, in turn, is driven by the audience. An attendee interacts with the Centerpiece, which then pulses light and color throughout the entire installation creating a sense of warmth for the pier community.The Centerpiece is much like a beating heart, with the installation being the body all around it. The heart emanates outwards to all the other lights, setting color themes and pulse states. This will all heighten the overall vibe and feeling for the audience. But to be clear, this is not EDM, with overwhelming sensory overload. Instead, our theme will mimic the concert’s vibe. It will be a chill, warm, pleasant experience that makes you feel like you’re a part of something together. At its core, this is an audience-driven experience. Every light pulse emanates from the attendees’ data, making it a truly immersive and interactive experience for everyone participating in the Santa Monica Pier Concert Series.

Light Kinetics, in the loop

Light Kinetics is the last interactive installation of Espadaysantacruz a, Madrid based, creative studio. In this piece, light is controlled by a physics simulator creating a astonishing effect. A piezo electric sensor situated in the first bulb captures the force of the tap, generating a light particle that moves along the loop. All the shades of the energy are reflected in the trajectory of the light. The system is powered by Unity 3D that simulates de forces that apply to the virtual corpuscle.

Interactive unfold of a music score in space

Electroluminescent thread, electronic, piano Disklavier Yamaha DC6XE3PRO. Portée/ is a collective multi-sensorial experience. Through a poetic wandering visitors of the church are invited to explore the spacial & interactive qualities of music. When they touch and trigger vibrations of luminous threads tensed inside the church, the notes associated to each thread are played on an electro-mecanic grand piano.

ICEBERG Interactive installation in Brussels

Iceberg is a playful immersive work that tells the story of an iceberg, from its calving into Arctic waters to its final melting near a southern shore. In their natural state, the crevasses within an iceberg resonate like gigantic organ pipes whose tonalities change as the iceberg gradually melts. Inspired by this monumental natural musical instrument, Iceberg consists of a series of illuminated metallic arches that each produce a particular sound. Arranged as a tunnel, the arches beckon visitors to enter, listen to and play this giant organ, whose notes and light travel from end to end of the musical corridor. Human activity “warms up” these ice monuments and transforms their original nature into a visual and auditory symphony.
