A new digital art installation that turns thousands of opinions into an endless stream of consciousness.
Inspired by the elegant paths of waterfalls, rapids, rivers and streams, the dynamic artwork creates a never-ending variety of shapes and forms.
The mesmerising streams of colour are driven by the hopes and concerns for the future of over 20,000 Australians, submitted in the form of Two Words, and translated into the animation in real-time.
A travelling installation commissioned and produced by The One Centre, the artwork was shown in the countries’ biggest cities in the spring of 2012.
A realtime audio-visual Composer
The artwork is driven by a bespoke composer software that generates a rhythmical score for both sound and visuals. Triggered by new word submissions to the online poll, the mood of the composer lives through different rhythms and patterns, injects impulses of colour and sound, and creates a never-ending, synaesthetic stream.
The dynamic soundtrack was developed in close collaboration with composer and sounddesigner David Kamp as a completely modular set of instruments, loops and sounds.

FIELD was commissioned by Sydney’s The One Centre to create this unique artwork for the Two Words for Tomorrow campaign for GE.
At the core of this unique transmedia project is an online poll where people submit their Two Words through a website, apps and widgets on popular news sites. Submissions are live reported online and in the installation.
