Pierre Schneider and François Wunschel of 1024 architecture describe their Tesseract / aka HyperCube via createdigitalmotion as “a 3d scaffolding urban install, loaded with an array of 65 moving lights.”
Controlled by their custom Quartz Composer software, “all the movement is derived from graphical data – images – translated in realtime into pan/tilt positions. The whole show is driven by a massive Ableton Live file – which allows us to make realtime adjustments and transformations always in sync with the music ;)”
From the 1024 architecture website:
TESSERACT (aka HYPER-Cube) is a 3D moving lights mapped sculpture that react to the sound.
It refers to the geometrical and mathematical Tesseract object, reinterpreted in real life with a 3D moving light array setup.
The installation is a 3d sculptural cube equipped with moving light, where the audience is invited to walk in. A tri-dimentional array of light mounted in an open scaffold construction are able to turn in any direction. Within the cube shape, the spotlights evoke a futuristic world. The installation is in fact no longer sculpture but motion itself: an ever-evolving state of shape and space of which the spectator is a part.
