WRAPPING ILLUSIONS

Time lapse

 

Intimate abstract installation performance with the technical and artistic freedom to create a visual sensations based on light and shadows. Interplay between elements like music, video projections, LED lighting, kinect sensor and movement elements, determined by timeline.
