We were commissioned by Artechhouse in Washington DC to compose a long-form musical piece for this two month long immersive, interactive installation.
“Step into a moonlit, floating environment where larger than life koi fish and colorful cherry blossom petals react to your presence. Contemplate the beautiful and ephemeral nature of life over an interactive 3D sculpture of a koi pond and walk narrow lantern lit "street" that responds to your footsteps.
SAKURA YUME // Cherry Blossom Dream is a large-scale seasonal installation curated by ARTECHOUSE and showcasing the works of Noirflux, Storylab, Karan Parikh & Nathan Solomon, Aoi Yamaguchi and Corey Fuller.
Inspired by the longstanding Cherry Blossom tradition in its hometown Washington, DC, and in search of a perfect way to share this beautiful experience with many, ARTECHOUSE invited 3 artist groups to create a unique cherry blossom experience. These artists through their own interpretation, yet using similar tools of projection and motion depth cameras, created an immersive and interactive digital experience that not only extends this beautiful springtime celebration yet preserves the transient and ephemeral nature of it.
The installation encompasses five unique activations where elements of Japanese culture and tradition become experiences at the intersection of art and technology.”
