A light-dynamic audio installation for the skating rink of Gorky Park. Moscow.
Inspired by op art and visual illusions, the principal concept for the main installation for the ice rink in Gorky Park was ‘stereo’. Matrix (or StereoHeart) was situated in a fountain in the center of the ice rink and was surrounded by an ice path, so the most important task was to deliver different and changing visuals from every angle.
Matrix was an audio dependent installation, which constantly reacted to sounds (music on the rink, special concerts or DJ sets inside), creating a constantly changing picture in real time. The dynamic rhythm of the installation created patterns that changed to the beat of the music. These visual effects caused optical illusions blurring the line between what you see and what is actually there.
