Lungta (2012-2015)

LUNGTA is a series of projects (audio performance, installation, dance) that dwells around a physical matrix of 192 motor-driven fans activating sheets of common stationary paper along a two-dimensional grid. Acting as a sort of pixel-based video image synthesizer or display, the matrix permits the specification of a rich and complex interaction between sound, video capture and performative gestures. The voltage of each individual motor can be controlled separately, allowing the horizontal position of each sheet of paper, thus the representation of any sort of “crude” images.
