Project

Light Choreographies

Light Choreographies is a light navigating sculpture that maps and choreographs patterns of human activity through combining robotics with optics and interactivity

Light Choreographies performance explores the dialogue between human and technology through an interactive robotic light projecting sculpture. 

The performance, projections and sculpture carry reference to planetary bodies. Traditional processes of glass blown forms harmonise with technological systems. The movement of sensors communicate to form a choreography of light.

The performer and the robot are coupled, each dancing in response to the other. The dialogue is formed and the conversation is projected, a dialogue of control and poetry, an entanglement of time and of space. 

A showreel of the perfromance can be viewed here: Light Choreographies

The technologies employed within the Light Choreographies performance have been realised through the kind support of Innovate UK Technology Strategy Board. The performance has been kindly supported by Arts Council Wales and Welsh Government.
