The Sphere is an immersive installation that presented the participants with the opportunity to explore the aural and visual extension and reaction of their body movement in the 5.1 surround-sound and surround-visual environment.
 
Interactions with the central piece of the installation - a wireless Sphere, created intended and unintended consequences in alien-like aesthetic room. The generative visuals and sound design were morphed and triggered depending on the type and speed of the Sphere movement. This formed results that the audience created but did not foresee.
 
Specific movements resulted in 'disturbing' the alien mesh visuals, having them morph and 'respond' as if a living alien being was reacting.
 
The installation was created to welcome Drasko Vucevic as an Interactive Director to the ACNE family.

Behind The Scenes
Laser cut polygons formed a hemisphere, holding the interactive parts of the installation.
The Sphere was equiped with accelerometer and gyroscope sensors, sending movement data to audio and visual generating software.
