Watch a beautiful trio between two dancers and a computer in production company Lightbeast's new video for WAKE, a projection-mapped light performance that generates visuals from real-time movements. Using a set of sensors and TouchDesigner—the same software that helps compose Carsten Nicolai, Maotik, and Oliver Ratsi's immersive worlds—Lightbeast's founders, Siggraph alum Moses Journey and Applied Esoterics' David Glicksman, built a stunning experience that floats models Emma Gregg and Renée Gunter through a universe of point clouds, interactive shadows, and TRON-like grids. Watch a selection from the show in the video below.
