Fluid Self is a traveling interactive installation amplifying human creativity, designed to ignite an exploration of a creative mind, allowing visitors to become a spark in the process of inspiration.
Participants in the installation can touch the mechanics of the mind, see information flowing from element to element, and hear this energy coalescing into a coherent musical entity representing our fluid self.
The installation is composed of layers: a deployable steel system provides the foundation and defines the spaces. This structure anchors interactive textile ‘neurons’ which act both as touch points and light pixels, further dividing the space. These physical layers allow two further layers of interaction: by touching the neurons, participants can delay or augment the flow of light, changing the patterns of communication from zone to zone. Taken together, all the patterns and variances that are created are mapped to a parametric musical piece that is constantly evolving and changing, reflecting the actions of those within.
