PANORAMA Music Festival 2018
Talissa had the pleasure of returning to PANORAMA Music Festival as one of seven ‘Oracles’ in “Pixel Vortex”, the most popular installation at the 2018 TheLAB. This interactive dome, put together by the The Windmill Factory, had festival goers interact with pixel balloons in a colorful dance party. Meanwhile, other festival goers visited The Podium where a sensor captured their Aura and transformed it into color, which filled up the room ahead of them with the pixel balloons.
Concept/Direction: Jon Morris
Production: Clementine Seely & Ana Constantino

Interactive Aura Sensor: Rob Godshaw with Ward Flemming’s pinscreens

If that wasn’t amazing enough, all Pixel Vortex visitors were surprised once exiting the dome, by finding Polaroid Photos of themselves, taken during their time at the podium. The photos had each an unique colorful filter generated from each person’s Aura sensored at the dome. And to finish it off, once handed your photograph, the magical Oracles, or may I say Auricles, gave you a full expert reading of the aura on your photo!
