In this immersive installation of improvised light and sound, a single human body becomes an abstracted focal point – a disembodied drishti within an unfolding science fiction odyssey. The work explores states of transition and the synergy between light, sound and the body, offering audiences a meditation on time, perspective and the moment of death.
Developed through in-depth collaboration and a residency at EMPAC Rensselaer in New York, Rachel Arianne Ogle, Benjamin Cisterne and Luke Smiles have created a transcendental experiment in design. An external feed of radio communications and cosmic chatter manipulates both light and sound in real time. These are then shaped and responded to live by the artists, creating a unique and precarious experience in each performance.
