[ISEA2009] Artists Statement: Alex Haw (atmos) & Mauritius Seeger (dr mo) – lumiskin: luminous responsive enclosures, 2009

Artists Statement

Projection, computer, sound

lumiskin uses projections to create an amorphous, reactive architecture, delicately enshrouding visitors, responding to their every move, dancing with them as they move through its ether. It spatialises surveillance tracking technologies in an exploration of ‘ambiveilance’ – the twin sides of surveillance that both empower and entrap its subjects. It both ensnares and aggrandises
its visitors, who drift into a light mist and accrue luminous spatial fragments – a generative
architecture constantly reforming its space around the occupants
