Flux & Flow
Flux & Flow is slated for installation at the Weisman Museum - summer 2010
a site-specific, interactive, kinetic, projection
The prototype developed in 2007-8, caught the attention of curator Diane Mullin who commissioned the work exhibition and for purchase in the museum's collection. Following a series of up and down funding scenarios the project has been rescheduled to be featured in the upcoming summer 2010 exhibition.
A one-third scale of this 24' long x 8' wide interactive kinetic projection screen was protoyped in 2009.
This video, recorded from the first protoype, is not a computer simulation. It is a direct recording of the movement of the kinetic projection screen and the surface movement of the ocean wave video projected onto this physical screen in motion.
The 2009 prototype explored the use of wireless sensing which will be used in the Weisman Museum installation. This site-specific work will be installed in the museum, abutting the window adjacent to the pedestrian pathway outside.
Flux & Flow will move in a range of watery modes. Periodically, the accumulated flow of pedestrain traffic as gathered by the wireless sensor will activate a crescendo wave echoing the collective energy of the passersby.
