FUTURE SELF, 2012

“Future Self’ studies human movement; what it can reveal about identity and the relationship we have with our own image. The installation captures movement in light creating a three dimensional, ‘living’ sculpture from the composite gestures of those who surround it. Viewers are bound together –in the moment– as an ethereal, illuminated presence. Making its premier through performance, commissioned and supported by MADE, ‘Future Self’ has been extensively explored in a new contemporary dance piece choreographed by Wayne McGregor and scored by Max Richter in responds to the installation

MATERIALS

Aluminium, Custom electronics
Metrilus 3D cameras, LED’s
Brass rods
1200 x 1500 x 3450 mm

TECHNOLOGY

As two dancers moved around the perimeter of the installation, 3D cameras recorded the shapes made by their bodies and replayed them on a brass grid of over 10,000 LED lights.

The installation mirrors our movement in light, creating a three dimensional, ‘living’ sculpture from the composite gestures of those who surround it. All information recorded by the device passes through a computer, so it can also be played back with a time delay or saved to replay later.
