Moiré Pool | interactive multimedia installation | 2017
Moiré Pool is a digital media based reflection pool where people can gather, interact with and observe a continually evolving sound and visuals. As observers move up to the edge of the pool (a circular projection surface), their movement creates ripples and waves of disturbance in the projected image and soundscape. Similar to the act of waiting for a small pond to clear after one has skipped a stone, if viewers stay still, they will see the settling of the original imagery. The intention is to create a space that rewards stillness and meditative observation, along with action and play.
