GRID: Kinetic Lighting, in Massive Array, Form Audiovisual Masterpiece [Bauder + Henke] | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Christopher Bauder (White Void) has built a rich body of work developing the medium of kinetic lighting, sending aloft lit orbs and balloons, in dazzling arrays of moving objects. And some of the best collaborations have been with master electronic composer Robert Henke, not only synchronizing sound but aligning process and pattern in each.

FLUIDIC – A Sculpture in Motion: An Interactive Field of 12,000 Spheres Illuminated by Lasers

FLUIDIC – A Sculpture in Motion: An Interactive Field of 12,000 Spheres Illuminated by Lasers | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

FLUIDIC is the result of a unique collaboration between Hyundai’s Advanced Design Center and Berlin-based studio WHITEvoid. The interactive light sculpture is made from 12,000 suspended spheres that act as three dimensional pixels, or voxels. Surrounded by 3D cameras the piece can sense viewer’s motions which are then translated into light patterns, but amazingly the light supplied to the individual voxels is fully external. An array of high-speed lasers project into the cloud to create the dynamic visuals in real-time.

Production designer Rachael Currie came up with the idea to solely use flashlights to paint the scene, and with a long exposure and a couple of people running around waving flashlights, it was a success.

In Moscow, International Artists Remake Light as Art, Intervention

In Moscow, International Artists Remake Light as Art, Intervention | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Projection … visuals … video … VJs … pixels.

What we’re really talking about is light: light, manipulated in three-dimensions as dynamic digital medium.

So, it’s fitting that as the draft form of educational programming for the Moscow International Festival of Light was being passed around, I noticed the following edit on a panel title:

“Shaping the future – Projection mapping as an expressive artistic medium” 
was renamed:
“Shaping the future – Light as an expressive artistic medium.”
