tuning the sky
tuning the sky was commissioned by the Weisman Art Museum and presented at Northern Spark 2012.
tuning the sky is a pop-in, illuminated cyclorama. It is a "surround-yourself-with-light" environment inspired by subtle and dramatic shifts of color in the sky.
Sometimes energizing sometimes calming, we respond to the changing light of the sky. Do you ever stop to watch the purple cast of a storm cloud approach, pause as blue sky turns to flame orange before daylight becomes twilight, or wake up just as the night sky is suddenly saturated with the warm amber hue of a fair weather sunrise?
Pop into one of the suspended islands of sky and tune the light of this miniature atmosphere to the sky of your dreams. When you enter one of these floating worlds you immerse yourself in a single color, a halo of light that fills the horizon all around your head. Feel the changing light as you bask in a dusk to dawn glow that you can tune to match the spirit of the moment that most inspires you.
This brief movie of Tuning this Sky gives you a sense of the chromatic atmospheres that you can create as you tune the pop-in sky that surrounds you.
