Duality is a pair of monolithic structures attempting to attract viewers from a distance, inviting them to walk through the immersive sculpture and be transported to another state of mind. When visitors pass through this gate, they will be able to trigger movements of light and color, transforming their world temporarily. This piece encourages participants to continue on their path with an altered perspective and heightened sense of wonder.
Portland Winter Light Proposal
My proposal is to install an immersive sculpture that viewers can walk through while being surrounded by giant walls of interactive LED lights.The PVC structures will be lined with individually addressable LED lights to create giant LED matrix displays that will interact with the viewer as they pass by using Passive Infrared (PIR) sensors. The entire structure can be battery powered, allowing for daily recharging.
Fuzzy Beuys [pronounced: fUHz-ee byOO-eez] is an arts and entertainment group based in Eugene, Oregon. The group was originally established in 2005 as an art collective featuring local media artists working in technology. Their work uses video manipulation, digital content, and found footage to improvise video and musical performances. Their goal is to bring wonder and levity to the community by means of projected visuals, designed sound compositions, and interactive installations. The Fuzzy Beuys perform using interstitial and communal spaces, seeking engagement with unassuming spectators. They strive to inspire curiosity and joy through art and technology.
