Multifaceted artist Muti Randolph redefines the space his installations inhabit, blurring the lines between art and architecture. He designs interactive works that allow spectators to enter and experience the visually stimulating installations firsthand. His piece titled Deep Screen invites gallery visitors to step into the display and take in the three-dimensional experience.
Randolph, who is based in Rio, Brazil, says, “My work is always trying to get people inside my head, inside the things I create. When you are in front of a 2D monitor, that usual experience of watching TV or going to the movies, you end up imagining you are inside the movie… But with this stuff here, you are literally inside the action.”
The interactive installation features over 6,000 balls of light that serve as giant pixels for the life-sized, three-dimensional area they occupy. It is is programmed to both react to people and follow movement, and in addition to random animations, Randolph displays the images of several national flags. More than just a feast for the eyes, this LED light show, made for The Creators Project, also doubles as an engaging sound installation, heightening the lively experience.
