It wouldn’t be ungrounded and fluffed if we sound off ‘everything is conceivable and duck soup’ for those ingenious minds who have incessantly been churning out extraordinarily innovative technologies for us to experience. At least, that’s what most of you would agree upon – once have glimpsed over the latest advancement. Pretty amazingly, rAndom International Choreographer Wayne McGregor and Composer Max Richter have just removed the sheath of their newest ‘living sculpture model’ called Future Self.
Developed meticulously, the unbelievably advanced project endeavors to open new possibilities for technological sphere in near future. But hold on, what’s the whole buzz about? Well, the unique looking lighting installation has been conceived to seamlessly map and replicate your body movements. So basically, the living sculpture will be mimicking your body movements in light. Like really?
The project, however, was showcased as part of a dance performance held recently at the MADE Exhibition in Berlin. To render an insight, as two dance performers moved around the perimeter of the Future Self, the system’s embedded 3D cameras impressively recorded the shapes formed by their bodies and replayed the movements on a brass grid of more than 1o,000 LED lights.
But irrespective of how many people approach the installation at one, the image sketched out by the lights will always bear a resemblance to a single figure. However, the system can still efficiently conjugate the movements of more than one body. Although the detailed mechanism is yet to be divulged, Future Self does appear promising enough to literally revamp the manner humans interact with advanced equipments.
What’s more, all information which gets recorded by the installation will further pass through a computer. By taking advantage of which, people will be enabled to play back their information back with a time delay or simply save it to replay later.
Nonetheless for now, the new performative light installation ‘Future Self’ has been explored extensively by the developers. The availability in real existence, whereas, has no official confirmation at the moment.
