«Floating in Dancing Lights» is a mesmerizing dance performance featuring a dancer and a flying swarm of objects, illuminated by means of Spatial Augmented Reality. The performance represents the tentative culmination of an internal project of the Immersive Arts Space of Zurich University of the Arts which offers a do-it-yourself framework for designing and building remotely controllable helium drones.
In a workshop prior to the REFRESH #3 conference, a group of students have built their own helium drones and explored different aspects of the framework – from sculpting their own balloon shapes to choosing an appropriate propulsion technology to design a scenography and light setting with the help of projection mapping. Curated by Martin Fröhlich and Denise Lampart, one of the results of the workshop will become part of the performance.
