The exhibition ‘Lumiere‘ will illuminate Durham’s historical buildings, streets and bridges for four nights; including a special exhibition of the interactive light artwork ‘Liquid Space‘.
Lumiere 2011 Artichoke, 17-20 November, Durham UK.
LIQUID SPACE 6.0 is an interactive space that becomes physically bigger, smaller, and brighter in relation to human behavior. As an organic fusion of mechanisms, embedded electronics, sound, and LEDs, the artwork creates a playful dialogue with its visitors.
The first version of LIQUID SPACE 6.0 premiered in Japan as a commission for the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media. The project’s behavior evolves in relation to its visitors, creating a sensual coexistence.
LIQUID SPACE 6.1 is a public, interactive artwork placed on the island of Terschelling NL for Atelier Oerol. An ambient location in the heart of a forest allowed this site-specific version of LIQUID SPACE to establish an almost otherworldly connection with visitors, creating a futuristic merge of humans, technology, and landscape.
