New York City/San Francisco, 2011
Origin continues UVA’s exploration of large-scale responsive LED sculpture. As part of The Creators Project New York event, UVA created Origin, a responsive installation meant to explore our society’s acceptance of a technocratic life form.
Hedged between the two Bridges on Brooklyn’s shore, a 10m x 10m cube of light both disrupts and reflects the City, eliciting an emotional reaction from those that enter its realm. Origin is the culmination of a series of works derived from Orchestrion, the main stage design created by UVA for Coachella 2011.
Origin is the product of a collaboration between United Visual Artists and Scanner, who composed the score.
