Aura, 2021

Live motion-tracking installation

"Aura" is an immersive, interactive experience at Flutter Experience in Los Angeles. The room reads your aura based on your creative energy. The generative auras were inspired by fungal decomposers and the way that they create new life out of death. I used a series of 3D modeled and animated spores with a series of feedback loops to create abundant, decorative, fungal patterns which are randomly generated with variations in color and shape based on the movements of the room occupants. These auras are then projected on the bodies of the viewers using an infrared sensor to track their movement. Finally, I made a soundscape using my voice, natural sounds, and Eb Maj chords to give the room a feeling of serenity.
