Digital Habitat (2003)

Digital Habitat (Hábitat Digital) is a multimedia projection mapping installation that investigates the notion of immersion and displacement of the human body in a fictional over-stimulating digitally rendered space. It challenged the viewer to adapt to an environment of ongoing restlessness. This exhibition is also an exploration of the aesthetics of RGB color system (The RGB Cube) and references Josef Albers' Homage To The Square series and other artists and art movements. A fourth dimension is added to the installation by the digital sound of Didier Guigue. The music echoes audio experiences of the every-day and were manipulated by digital processes to reshape one's perception of the environment.

Artist Statement

Digital Habitat (Hábitat Digital) is a multimedia installation that investigates the notion of immersion and displacement of the human body in a fictional over-stimulating digitally rendered space. It challenged the viewer to adapt to an environment of ongoing restlessness.

Digital Habitat is a site-specific projection mapping installation created with Macromedia Director and scripted with Lingo. For this work computer-rendered animated and autonomous compositional elements such as numbers, and text are projected from a single source system to create an immersing experience. This exhibition is also an exploration of the aesthetics of RGB color system (The RGB Cube) and references Josef Albers' Homage To The Square series and other artists and art movements.

A fourth dimension is added to the installation by the digital sound of Didier Guigue. The music echoes audio experiences of the every-day and were manipulated by digital processes to reshape one's perception of the environment.

(This exhibition was partially funded from a 2003 grant received from the Puffin Foundation - U.S.A)
