Light Leaks: darkened rooms at galleries in Paris, Nantesand LA filled with 50 disco balls illuminated by a sequence of timed, coloured lighting cues by Kyle McDonald and Jonas Jongejan. To wit:
…hundreds of structured light scans to capture the volumetric position of every pixel being projected by each of the three projectors. The pair then used SketchUp to predict the reflected pixel positions.
A lamp designed by Leslie Nooteboom that projects animated patches of light on walls – mimicking the appearance of what the Japanese callkomorebi (patches of sunlight reflected off water or filtering though leaves).
The idea is to add soothing ambience to high rise spaces usually denied such simple pleasures.
…8 architectural video projectors… split into 630 sub-projectors using an apparatus of concave mirrors designed by artificial nature. Each mirror and its backing structure are computationally generated to create a group that collaborates to form the single image in the air. By measuring the path of each of the 16,000,000 pixel beams individually, light beams can be calibrated to merge in the haze to draw in the air. 40 channels of audio are then used to build a field of sound which solidifies the projected phenomena in the audience’s senses.
