de/flektor is an interactive kinetic installation using linear actuators, mirrors, custom LED lighting and physical computing technology. It was exhibited during the opening reception of Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016
at the Whitney Museum. VIP guests and invited artists for the Audi sponsored private event were the first to experience this immersive light and visual experience.
Audiences interacted with de/flektor by entering its 30’ hypnotic tunnel of luminescent lights programmed to mimic the sense of speed and movement. Leveraging our skills in robotics integration, a 18' x 9 mirrored sculpture placed at end of the tunnel came alive with motors, custom driver electronics and software. Kinect sensors moved the mirrors and light to human presence crafting an endless universe of shadows and light deflected by interaction.
