Vibeke will discuss her large interactive visual music installation that includes biofeedback with plants. Inspired by Asian traditional folding screens, Tibetan medicine mandalas, and the atmospheric phenomenon known as the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), Illuminations is a real-time, interactive screen visual music installation using objects from South Asia (Tibetan Singing Bowls, Indian Ottomans, folding screen), living plants, 3D graphics, sound and sensors. Users are asked to reconsider relationships between organic systems, material and digital cultures, and discover new connections among them. This "illuminated folding screen" seeks to transcend traditional "East-West", "Ancient-Modern", "Nature-Technology" relationships by translating data across species and modalities, producing a luminous environment for reflection, contemplation, and meditation.
