Point, Line, Surface


Digital Boogie Woogie

LAb[au]'s Point, Line, Surface computed in seconds will be presented in form of an outdoor urban and interactive installation in the center of Brussels. The installation is presented in the context of Cimatics 05 festival and Maiis # 3 _ ''ville en creation/creatie in de Stad" festival. From October 25 to November 5, 2005, everyday 17:00 - 24:00; opening reception: October 25, 17:00h.

Point, Line, Surface is an interactive installation by LAb[au] which immerses the user in an audiovisual space. The user creates on a touchscreen a sonic and visual composition spatialised through quadraphonic sound and (a 10x10m) floor projection which can be animated through finger-movement. Referencing Mondrian's Boogie Woogie which draws a relation between the rhythmic structure of a jazz-piece, the composition of graphic elements on canvas and the urban grid of New York, the project Point Line Surface extends these relationships to an interactive vocabulary inside the urban and electronic space.
