About the project
A technique emerging from recent developments in lighting and computing is the use of three-dimensional arrays of controllable lights (LEDs) to create dynamic visual experiences that occupy physical space and can be explored from within. These techniques can be used to give the impression of presence, movement and form within physical space. The Ocean of Light project builds on previous experience to explore both the creative and artistic potential of such systems, principally when incorporated into interactive public art projects.
How can (low resolution) human scale LED-based 3D visualisation techniques be used effectively, particularly in immersive public art projects? What visualisation techniques are most effective, and in what ways can these techniques be used in other applications and visualisation systems?
Analytical frames: Affect, visual perception, low resolution visualisation. Methods: practice led research and analysis of artistic outputs of the project and others.
Deliverables: design products and processes, methods and concepts, papers and chapters theses and websites, ‘tools’ and knowledge, installations and workshops.
Funding: Technology Strategy Board, project partners, AHO central.
