Abstract
Landscapes

2011 reconstituted 2015 — 10 installations

An exhibit-path along ten installations designed to physically engage audiences. The meaning of four letters in mathematical language is the key to open an imaginary landscape bordering visual and performance arts.

Because X (horizontality) Y (verticality) Z (depth) and T (time) can describe a point’s movement in space, they also carry the essence of the potential place of that movement. The path, crossing a nature represented geometrically and organically, is responsive to visitors, who can play with the light in a landscape of lines, points and letters as they explore a vibrant and fleeting virtual environment generating dance and movement. Images are created in real time from physical movement modelling.
