Kinetic Sculpture Spectra-1

ArtworkInstallationPhysicalArt DirectionData Visualisation

Spectra-1 is a spatial collage of digital and physical elements, synchronised to an ambient soundscape.

Solar eruptions and electromagnetic debris are projected into a large solar sail, blending with colour reflections, a data display, sound and wind into a multisensory collage.

The narrative of the installation evolves around a NASA data-set about the journey of the Voyager 1 space probe; taking mankind’s exploration into interstellar space as a metaphor for a personal search we are all familiar with.

Spectra-1 is part of a series of art installations which translate digital and graphical aesthetics into the physical realm: with reflective materials, vibrations of light, and temporal and spatial instability.
