SINGULARITY :: MArch(Prof) Thesis Project by Yinan Liu and Ying Miao performed at Q Theatre on Wed 2.11.16 at 7.30pm
SINGULARITY blends data, dance, music and architecture in an immersive performance that transports audiences into spaces of awe and delight. Using interactive holographic environments and creative technologies directed by architect Uwe Rieger, designed and programmed by Yinan Liu and Ying Miao, and choreography by Carol Brown with dancers Zahra Killeen-Chance, Adam Naughton and Solomon Holly-Massey, the Rangatira Theatre is transformed. Clouds of data become wormholes, kites, watery walls and particle streams in response to the dancers’ movement. This coupling of dancer and data shapes worlds that make palpable the multiple ways that data flows permeate the present. With music by French techno composer JérômeSoudan, and sound design by Russell Scoones, sonic atmospheres and rhythms propel this unique dance, architecture and technology experience.
About the research:
The SINGULARITY technical system was developed at the Lab for Digital Spatial Operations [arc/sec ] at the University of Auckland’s School of Architecture and Planning. The project is embedded in current global research and developments around tangible data and digital matter – the attempt to move beyond the two dimensionality of a computer display and to present instead a visual and tactile experience in the physical world.
