A 500 part voice and light experience in the form of a dynamic, sculptural wave.

Wave consists of some five hundred individual suspended orbs, points of presence brought to life through light and sound, that collectively create a resonant and dynamic audiovisual experience – a sustaining space within which each orb resonates in changing harmonies to create an enveloping and entrancing physical presence.

The work continues Squidsoup’s ongoing explorations and obsession with elemental themes, particularly water.

Each orb in the wave is an autonomous sensate unit consisting of LED lights, speaker and microcomputer, with movement sensor and wireless connectivity.
Together they create a walkthrough immersive experience; 500 points of light, 500 voices, interconnected using Internet of Things technology and acting in choreographed harmony to create a series of emotive and enticing, sensual immersive environments – a sanctuary in this crazy world.

This is a touring version of a project initially commissioned by Salisbury Cathedral, with variations shown at Burning Man and Canal Convergence festivals.
