Lamp invited us to be a part of the 2016 LAMP exhibition. ‘Lighting Architecture Movement Project’ is a group installation & exhibition showcasing light and form through the lens of architectural design. We were excited to be a part of the project, especially due to it being held in Jan Kath, in Railtown, Vancouver.
For this exhibition, a new design of Quantal Quilt was made, featuring entirely new projection mapped video content.
Quantal Quilt is a geometric projection mapping artwork which uses gravity and chaos theory to form its three dimensional shape. The tessellated design of the triangles and diamonds allows the canvas to fold in geometric, yet also natural ways, an unusual feature in projection mapping surfaces. Each time the piece is hung, it settles in to a unique form, appearing like a low polygon version of itself in a computer generated world.
Irises look like exploded stars. A ring of colour around a void. In eyes, the iris controls the aperture of our eye, allowing more or less light in to our retinas. When the eyes let in more light than they should, the peripheries of vision start to dance and vibrate, revealing hidden dalliances at the edge of our visual process. Normally, seeing this wouldn’t be an evolutionary advantage, so the iris’ aperture filters it out. But for a moment in time, can our expanded vision reveal the divine beauty of what lies just out of sight, and lead us forward with inspiration to explore and seek out deeper understanding of ourselves in the universe?
Hfour would like to thank LAMP and Jan Kath for their support in the creation of this exhibition.
