Resonance is the culmination of the spatial and experiential research. Resonance uses light to spread the image of exhibition participants infinitely in two directions – into the past and future – as they move within the work, forcing them to confront their own positioning. in a mechanized out-of-body experience. Consistent with the theories of artists studied in the class, the work is incomplete with-out incorporating the movement of the body, reminding us that the human component is the most vital of any designed experience. Perhaps as an even deeper allusion to our everyday psychology, the effect of Resonance is far more dramatic when perceiving others through the machine from the outside.
By design, the installation was built in self-standing modules allowing the team to test the effect and integration of lighting systems prior to final installation. Every detail was calculated, including the angle of the twin LED lamps so that beams overlap perfectly within each unit, amplifying the intended effect.
