CIRCULAR is a small scale kinetic installation by the light artist Christopher Bauder. The installation consists of three seemingly free floating light rings. The cosmic atmosphere of the slowly moving object and the delicate animations on the pixel led rings create a mesmerizing sight.
The piece was first shown in Paris in 2015, later on in Loule, Portugal and Berlin.
My role in this project was to co-design the visual patterns with Christopher Bauder as well as programming the kinetic choreography of the rings. The visual choreography was coded in TouchDesigner. The content is generated in real-time by the software and distributed to the kinetic system via Art-Net.
The basis of the Kinetic Lights Control Software was developed by Markus Heckmann from derivative.
