Sean Miller: 144°, installation view at The MAC, 2018, photo by Paperlyte


Interactive Light Installation

144° features landscape-like, generative audio and video projections mapped onto a panoramic structure based on a partial cylinder. Visitors will experience a strong immersive sensation through this piece, which uses a simple physical structure inspired by mid-19th century landscape paintings. 144° draws from the early history of immersive virtual art while pointing toward the future of time-based media as it utilizes tightly scaled randomness to produce an organic chaos. The moving abstractions become rocks, mountains, and flowing waters, while the synthetic chirps, buzzes and drones are the sound of elemental forces and hidden fauna.
