The Ups & Downs is an installation series. The show goes up, the show goes down. Opening party on Thursday night and closing party the next night, on Friday. No time for exhibitions. Low impact, ephemeral and immersive art. People with lots of People. The market. It’s a party. Time for the underground. It’s a ball. It’s for The People. This has been made for you. Do I know you? The show must go on. Installed and De-installed. Up. Down. Now what? Now then…
The Ups & Downs:
Pablo N. Molina
Continuing an exploration of human-media interaction, Pablo N. Molina’s newest work uses digital projection and custom software to create a dynamic spatialized interface where human movement is processed and extended. An immersive and responsive video display and digital sensory framework will track both presence and movement to produce an intricate and reactive environment. Meaningful conversations between human stimuli and data processing are temporarily registered as visual and auditory output. Viewers should feel free to explore and discover new modes of action and reaction. The purposely open-ended coding framework allows for completely unexpected, though never random, modes of feedback.
