Artaudian Lights

Artaudian Lights took place in Hexagram-Concordia’s black box research facility in collaboration with Harry Smoak and under the umbrella of the Topological Media Lab. The three-week residency marked the beginning of an ongoing investigation into the development of new technological and human models for performance based sensing environments. The collaboration was designed to deal with issues that revolve around the interaction between movement, lights and projection through camera-based tracking and computer vision. The focus of this ongoing research is to explore, identify and develop new movement techniques, and applications of pattern recognition and computer vision.
