Collider4

Many of the projects for the Collider4 Exhibition are on display at the Emily Davis Gallery in Folk Hall, but there are some that are found at the Honors College and at Bierce Library. One of the projects found at Bierce Library in the Emerging Technologies Lab is Eunsu Kang’s Membranes. Membranes uses the Xbox Kinnect sensor, a projector and sound to create a sort of watery space. From a distance the the screen is still and quiet. When the sensor picks you up at a distance it starts making soft ocean sounds and ripples around your projected image. When the viewer moves closer still the sound and waves becomes more intense. The sound turns from a soft rippling sound to a heavy waves crashing sound, the image also turns into a more dramatic energy around the person interacting with the piece.

There is also a third area between the two larger areas, but it is very small and difficult to activate.

It’s nice to have this exhibit in an area away from the art school in the school’s main library where students of other majors can experience it without having to leave the comfort of their everyday activities, so people with a different mindset can experience it with a different point of view.
