Depths of Sorrow: Vanish! Nocturne 2017
October 14th saw our collaborative team Motion Activated in a multimedia performance with my work as visual artist and animator, audio/visual composer Lukas Pearse, and dance artist Veronique MacKenzie, in the presentation of Depths of Sorrow- a large-scale projection event relating the haunting and tragic story of the maiden voyage of the Titanic.
|While waiting for night to fall, Véronique spoke with the gathering crowd |
about her exciting imminent departure on the Titanic
|In the projection space, preparations and rehearsal took place the night before.|
|Rehearsal on October 13th, as viewed from the courtyard.|
|Viewed from the interior three screens were placed on the north, east and west sides of the|
Living Room, with three projectors rear-screening the video, animations and live performance.
|During the performance, Véronique's live movement was added |
to the video projection through infrared capture.
|Véronique also added to the story by interrupting the projection |
creating a shadow image.
|Looking down from the projection area, the performance was reflected in the window glass.|
