Performance Art, Multimedia Installation

Visitors take part in performance art when live artists & digital processors incorporate visitor participation into a live audio-visual performance. Each experience will become a unique interaction with sound and light.

This large-scale installation is what the onlooker makes of it. The sounds they make, how fast they are walking - everything they do within the confines of the cavernous lobby will change the audiovisual experience. Designed with the principle of the observer effect in mind, the display draws inspiration from the concept of an observer actively affecting the phenomenon being observed.

The artists of this installation will incorporate the multiple elements 'submitted' by audience members including photographs, audio, video, and text into live audio-visual performances produced by the artists themselves.
