Preview of work-in-progress sketches (updated video)

To say thank you to everyone in Bristol for making our UK premiere of Submergence (see here and here) such an enjoyable and successful event, we will be showing a sneak preview, a few sketches from our latest work-in-progress, on Monday 16th December and Tuesday 17th December, from 4pm to 10pm at The Eye, in Bristol. The sketches work on some of our favourite themes – digital materiality, decay, granularity and virtual movement in physical space. Do please come!

Using the same 3D LED array system as our latest piece Submergence, we have created a few sketches that use an alternative approach to building digital form that occupies physical space.

Imagine if each physical light had a virtual twin, able to move freely in space. These 8,064 virtual points of light can be choreographed to collectively suggest form and movement, resulting in a different aesthetic to our previous work – more fragmented, unpredictable, organic. You see the virtual lights through the filter of their physical equivalents.

This is a work-in-progress, a direction of travel – but definitely not a final, coherent piece.

This preview, and the exhibition of Submergence that preceded it, were made possible thanks to the tireless efforts of Watershed, the Pervasive Media Studio and the PG Group.
