WRAPPING ILLUSIONS

 

Azael Ferrer developed an intimate abstract installation performance with the technical and artistic freedom to create a visual sensations based on light and shadows. He emphasizes the interplay between elements like music, video projections, LED lighting, kinect sensor and movement elements.  Instead of using a traditional stage/screen setup, Azael has designed a kinetic scene where the projection surface (textures on paper) acts in harmonic movement with LED lights, projection, and music.
