Light Installation using multiple projectors at Aurora Festival 2015. This work was presented as an installation that is activated by a Butoh dancer to an interactive dance performance in Luxate. Creating content for multiple projectors to be experienced by looking directly to the light beam is an alphabet by itself that generates a holographic and tridimensional perception of light.
“These simple translations illustrate the passage from the 2D designs on screen to what the audience perceives with the use of projected light. Using these guidelines distributed in six different outputs and modalities as the only light source created a fully immersive dynamic light architecture. The light displayed and projected by the video projector does not stop reproducing itself until it reaches the walls of the theater space.” Extract from my P.hD dissertation (Chapter 5, pag.165)
