Touring version of Squidsoup's immersive 500 voice sound and light experience.

Murmuration is an immersive walkthrough public art installation that uses some 500 individually suspended points of light and sound to create a responsive data swarm that swirls around visitors’ heads.

The piece uses mesh-networked data systems to connect 500 bespoke orbs that each control and emit light and sound, creating dynamic flows of live data, sound and light. These flowing behaviours are inspired by the murmurations (flocking patterns) of starlings.

Murmuration is a Squidsoup project, originally commissioned by SMoCA (Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art). Sound design by Ollie Bown and Squidsoup.

The work was first shown at SMoCA from december 2019 to June 2020, and was then shown at London’s Canary Wharf as part of their Connected by Light festival (November 2020 – March 2021).
