A construction of modern technology, luminous screens on steles. In the dark room, however, they suddenly appear mystical and magical like an old stone circle, familiar and eerie at the same time.
For the biennial exhibition Luminale in Frankfurt and Offenbach, an audiovisual installation was created while interning at Sensory Minds.
Several displays form a semicircle. The installation is accompanied by several, diverse soundscapes. Based on the sound environment, animations are played, which lead the visitors into an abstract but immersive world.
I took part in the conception and build a framework for MIDI controlled animations in processing. Based on the framework, i created multiple animations for the installation, based on the sounds provided by Mainakkustik.
Sadly, it could not be exhibited as it took place while the COVID-19 lockdown.
I developed a framework that allowed us to generate a variety of complex animations by simply using the tools of a modern digital audio workstation like Ableton.
In this example, eight different displays can be called by sending their respective MIDI note. This way, you could use e.g. velocity as a value for opacity, speed or similar attributes of the animation.
One of 15 different animations that were created for the installation.
