Sharjah Spectrum

Some screenshots from my new animation,"Sharjah Spectrum".

It will be tiled and installed across 3 walls at the Sharjah Art Museum from Wednesday next week(16/12/2015).

The piece has had music composed especially for it and participants can choose the colours in the gallery with their mobile phones. The colour choices are updated via WIFI every 20 seconds.

When there are no choices being made, the computer code makes a random colour choice. The animation loops infinitely, the way it has been designed, it is very unlikely that the same colour and time sequence will ever repeat.


With thanks to Cris Thompson, Aftab Hussain and Valerie Grove. (This exhibit forms part of the bigger Islamic Art Festival from 16th Dec15 - 16th Jan 16)
