Mobile Interactive Audiovisual Installation
Realised within intimate space, through the use of infinitely reflected LED lights: The Introspectacular Europe immediately disassociates it’s inhabiter from all connection to the external environment, triggered into response by the sound of incoming guests.
Webs of culminating light appear and disappear within an infinite encasing landscape, where the viewer and the art work are intrinsically connected.
Hypnotic light patterns and warm melodies emerge in abstract narratives, triggered by interactions of the inhabitant with the space. Through waves of light and soft bell sounds, participants are invited to reach introspective states.
Touring internationally alongside the live tour for the album The Way We Live (Released: Wolf + Lamb, 2012); performance and installation have been separated to dedicate a fully immersive space of sound and light. The Introspectacular (Europe) featured a ‘virtual’ keyboard realized through an infrared camera, allowing interaction with lights and sounds via simple and delicate movements. Fingertips passing through precisely mapped and active fields of space trigger different notes and colors to appear.
The Introspectacular (Europe) has been presented as the sole itinerant installation included in the 16th edition of "Luci d'Artista" (Artist Lights), hosted by the City of Turin, Italy. Instigated as a solo exhibition at Palazzo Saluzzo Paesana in Turin, Italy in June 2013, The Introspectacular journeyed through the city.
