Liminal

Transmedia Labworks: Elektra/ Greek National Opera 2018

#ProjectionMmapping #InteractiveInstallation #PhysicalComputing #OpenCV

The installation is an audiovisual composition based on the last scene of J. Strauss's "Electra" opera. Achieving revenge deprives the heroine of redemption, driving her from frenzied ecstasy to an inevitable crash. The project attempts to capture the emotions and mental state of Electra as she fulfills her tragic fate. The counterpoint of sound and image creates a constantly evolving narrative of fragmentation and confusion that is fueled by the movement of visitors at the site of the installation.

Liminal was presented after three months of experimentation at the Transmedia Labworks workshop.
