New version of an interactive light installation FLUX, exhibited in Tauron Lab (Katowice, PL), 09/2023.
Modern technology pushes the speed of communication between people to its limits. Meeting friends over web cameras feels almost like sitting in the same room. The signal that gathers us at this virtual table, and vast amounts of data transmitted to space and back, seems imperceptible. For FLUX, we’ve also aimed to push the technical aspects of digital interaction to the maximum. We’ve built our system, both in software and hardware, to use the highest potential of programmable LEDs on a large scale. The whole show runs by code, and is tightly synchronised to the spatial sound score. With a tubular shape rising to the clouds, four high-speed cameras and an eight-speaker sound system we’ve built an immersive experience which reveals hidden algorithms that shape our online encounters at the speed of light.
