moving air

Videos! You can see how the head feels and looks with people inside. This was from Wednesday night and we had many visitors. The shadow projections were great even for us as we had never tested the piece at night.

This second video, from Wednesday morning, shows the rocking motion of the piece in the low winds. The head really feels like it's waking up from a long sleep. There's a jackhammer in the background which coincides with some of the movement and we thought sounded like snoring. On this day and the day before we learned a lot about how to manage the movement due to wind, so now we have it down, but we did incur one tear in the bottom.Now I'm thinking of using this movement in the conception of another piece... hmmmmmm... kinetic inflatables.

This last viedo is a time lapse animation of the head as it was illuminated last night. We asked our lighting guys here (Bogdi and Alex!) to use two different lights and to keep them moving as an experiment. The music scoring was obviously added later. We chose this song simply because we thought the beat went and it made us smile, but now that I think about it, this song has some capitalist warnings, no?

  1. it's so incredibly beautiful!

    the strangely smooth orb in an otherwise ornate square - ties that are reminiscent of an EEG and undulating shadows like thoughts dancing in his head... it is evocative on so many levels.
