ICAT Playdate: Dense Space

April 13 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am UTC-5

Description: Dense Space explores the use of linear fiber material to generate netted volumes that, in their interplay with light and motion, densify the space of the installation. This piece is composed of spheres of varied sizes made of epoxy-impregnated glass fiber that when illuminated by stereo light sources cast shadows perceived as three-dimensional shadows (anaglyph 3D shadows) when seen through 3D glasses. The anaglyph 3D shadows make the boundary and depth of space uncertain and the actual location of objects in space ambiguous. The shadows appear as additional objects floating in the space of the installation, thereby densifying the dimly lit space.

The accompanying soundtrack, Beyond the Dark, composed by music faculty member and Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT) Fellow Charles Nichols, is a multichannel piece looping 22 minutes of synthesized sound. Paola Zellner Bassett will discuss the evolution of this project during this playdate.

Speakers: Paola Zellner Basset, School of Architecture + Design
