Phillips Large Luminous Surfaces
- Launch project
Interactive art concept: Echo
In this concept luminous textile displays geometric patterns that grow, stretch, roll, tumble and ripple based on movement of people in front of the installation.
A passing person affects the lights in real-time. The idea is to derive a tangible and fascinating interaction between human expression and light. In short luminous textile creates a visual echo. Tapio Rosenius: “It makes the light connected to its immediate surroundings.” With the specially created interactive platform you can allocate different interactions to various movements. These gestures act as parameters, which are in turn tied into randomized, timed events connected to different visual patches and algorithms.
Tapio Rosenius: “You begin to create a space that is in constant flux, in a very positive way. It’s constantly changing. It responds to the people using it. They
become the triggers that allow change all the time. It attracts people of movement, it understands depth andfrom that the algorithm calculates different visuals and looks all the time. For the interactivity we use the unpredictability of human behavior to our benefit.”
Human interaction is not a requirement for the installation to look interesting. It will however seek to interact and attempt to attract people, expressing its willingness.
