Ron Arad's Curtain Call
Ron Arad's Curtain Call
- As part of Bloomberg Summer at the Roundhouse, internationally renowned artist, architect and designer, Ron Arad, invited his favourite artists, musicians and friends to create unique work for his 360° interactive installation. We were amongst those invited to host an evening in which we showcased a diverse range of projects, old and new.
'Forest' is a large interactive musical laser installation. Commissioned by and premiered at the STRP Biennale in Eindhoven, this giant interactive forest covers almost 450 square meters and is composed of over 150 musical 'trees' made of rods and lasers. The audience can freely explore the space, physically tapping, shaking, plucking, and vibrating the trees to trigger sounds and lasers. Due to the natural springiness of the material, interacting with the trees causes them to swing and oscillate, creating vibrating patterns of light and sound. Each tree is tuned to a specific tone, creating harmonious sounds spatialized and played through a powerful surround sound setup.
The installation is designed to bring out in adults those feelings of curiousity and wonderment which are so alive and evident in children.
Forest exists as a tourable interactive installation, open to the public, and also a performance. The performance premiered at the STRP Biennale opening, consisting of 12 local children between the age of 8 and 12 years old. They were choreographed to move around the space, strumming and triggering the lasers and sounds.Art Direction, Engineering, Music2013
Introducing our new 5D Light ReflACTION (tm) Chamber we imagineered for the Intel PowerUp DJ competition powered by Ultrabook.
This is the first prototype of an evolving installation exploring the creation of multidimensional animations using infinity mirrors. Combining audioreactive elements with live performance, this immersive display thematically paralleled the contestants' sets.
Many thanks to onedotzero for the awesome collaboration and Intel UK for the amazing opportunity!
