Caitlin McGregor will need to approve that you worked on “Robert Henke: Lumiere II” before we add you as a collaborator.
Lumière is an audiovisual composition for lasers and sound. The building blocks of the piece are a new type of events, a compound of visual shapes and a sonic counterparts. The work is based on hundreds of these audiovisual 'notes', to create a previously unseen and highly synchronized immersive experience. The lasers project on a large screen, partially obscured by a wall of fog, which also makes the intensive beams of light visible in the air, connecting the lasers in the back of the room with the front, forming fragile temporary objects above the audience. The special quality of the laser light allows to combine complete darkness with moments of extreme brightness, pure white with intense saturated colors and precise movements with complex organic shapes. Lumière is a long term artistic research project, exploring syntax, meaning and narration within a newly developed audiovisual language (see also Early Laser Tests).
