Live music, projected animation, and performance
MuseumLab, Pittsburgh PA
Installation Design, Fabrication
Our team live mixed a collection of previously created animations with real-time 3D avatars, puppeteered behind-the-curtain by Nick Diamant:
Featured animations were created by the visual design team and our peers in Animation Studio.
The event's theme is based upon Jorge Louis Borges’ short story “The Library of Babel,” prompting a search for the possibility of meaning in randomness and the power of infinity.
The first half of the experience featured exploration and interaction, with sculptures, roving musicians, and performers from Exploded Ensemble and Activating the Body.
Audience members were invited to don 3D glasses in anticipation of the second half.
The second half presented projection art in concert with a live musical performance in MuseumLab's Assembly Hall.
This exhibition was made possible by generous support from the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry and CMU IDeATe at Carnegie Mellon University along with partners at MuseumLab.
