Tesseract / HyperCube – An ever-evolving state of shape and space

First shown at the New Forms Festival (CA) and followed by Signal Festival (CZ), Glow Festival (NL) and many more to come, Tesseract - also known as the HyperCube, is the latest installation by the Paris based collective 1024 Architecture. 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.

All the show is realtime controlled by Ableton Live and 1024 Architecture's custom software written using objective c++.  The moving light positions (pan/tilt) is derived from images, which allows natural interactions (contrast ... etc).
