Vertigo took part in Reflektor Light Festival 2017 in Søndermarken with the magnificent light installation, Volitant, floating above the visitors’ heads. Vertigo invited the spectators to take part in a 360 degrees experience, where nature complimented art and technology as the interactive installation created a room for both exploration in the urban space as well as room for a playful engaging experience with technology.
The hoovering interactive cathedral greeted the visitors with pulsating light textures, putting a fight to the coming darkness of fall and winter. The light structure was placed on a hill top in between eight large trees, making the atmosphere rather enclosed from the ordinary. The ornament represented an alter of simplicity and geometric shapes, that changed behaviour according to its audience.

 

The sight that met visitors when they approached the sculptural installation from afar was kind of eerie. This was due to the crowd assembling on the hilltop staring up on the alien form over their heads as if they were hypnotised.

The Volitant consisted of a pillar made of 18xBlackLED (2 meters) and an encircling form going around the pillar. The installation was made interactive through microcontrollers and sensor components programmed in Processing. Beneath is the sketches of the initial idea drawn in Sketchup.

At the urban light festival taking place in the dark days of November in Copenhagen we created the outdoor installation, Blacktipi. It consisted of three smaller light sculptures and one large standing 7 meters tall made out of one of our signature creations, the blackLEDs.

The content consisted of ambient colours of lights that changed during the event and created a crisp contrast to the surrounding darkness.

In collaboration with ENIGMA and the three artists Mikkel Meyer, SØS Gunver Ryberg and Jens B Christiansen (Rumpistol) Vertigo created the twofold experience, Restart/Refrain.

First part of the experience was three live CUBE concerts based on music created by Mikkel Meyer, Søs Gunver Ryberg and Jens B Christiansen and visual effect projected on the sides of the CUBE. The music was created special for this event to ensure it both reflected the artists’ own personal styles and could be remixed afterwards in a re-experience of the event in an installation.

The second part of the experience was an installation based on the live event. Inside the CUBE an interactive space was created by sensors that tracked the visitors’ movement, thus inviting them to create their own remix of the live event. In this way the visitors’ movement inside the CUBE created an echo of the live event based on both the audio and visual parts. With their bodies as the input they could control the audio/visual output.

Vertigo’s mainpart in Restart/Refrain was creating the visual experience, building the frame and programming the interactive part of the installation.

Lydspejlet or The Sound Mirror is a highly interactive urban installation located in Varde. It is based on audio/visual outputs created by 96 LED-light luminaires, two speakers, and two light and two audio sensors.

Lydspejlet has several interaction points. First of, there are the two sound sensors. They are each placed in a pillar and can be manipulated through belonging tools. When visitors plays with the tools, waves of light are send through the luminaires. Secondly, two light sensors are places at the stairs. When the stairs are used an output based on light and sound is created. Lastly, it is possible to connect to WiFi speakers affiliated with the installation. The audio played through the speakers will be reflected in the installations luminaires as well. This all creates a lively spectacle for squares visitors.

Vertigo created the interactive urban installation whereas other parties created the spaced it was installed in.
