BEAM 2023 Proposal
Our proposal is to adapt our recent installation “Electric Jelly” into a free standing sculpture or structure that viewers can walk through and interact with the video on the outside. Viewers from the outside can see the person go into the structure and can follow their movement inside by watching video projection on the outside of the structure. There will be a curated stereo soundtrack playing in the vicinity of the piece. There will also be UV lights inside of the structure to illuminate fluorescent Jelly fish and rocks throughout the piece.
The installation is designed to be experienced as a multisensory immersive environment, with the video projections taking over the entire space and enveloping the viewer in a kaleidoscope of colors and patterns. The soundscapes are carefully crafted to enhance the visual experience, and create a sense of being immersed in an underwater realm.
All materials will be secured temporarily and will leave no trace upon removal.
