Video example and excerpts

Excerpt from “Ambient Light (2017)” TRT :1:19, an instillation for projected light and computer generated sound and images.  The performer, the “User” of the Iphone is an audience member.  Audience members take turns holding an Iphone and the position and movement of the phone controls the computer program.   The sound and images are generated and produced in the darkened environment.   The voices are that of participants; an adjacent studio records samples of willing participants during the instillation, those new samples are loaded into the computer program.
