Brooklyn-based tape specialist Aakash Nihilani has new work to show us. “Projections” is an interactive canvas made up of cubic design that are projected on a wall and are responsive to the movements of a partaker in play. How does it work? A sensor that is located close by and trails the participant’s movements to show an arrangement of cubes that responds in real time. All that with the use of coding and motion software.
The result is a fun display of movement with black or coloured cubes spiralling like a snake or rising and falling. The variations are infinite in number reacting to the viewer’s every movement. Nihilani says of his new project “as with my street these works not only invite human interaction but cannot fully exist without it, ultimately revealing as much of the individual as the piece itself. this exchange between the artwork and the viewer is essential in order to illuminate the underlying personality and sculptural quality of the work”.
