«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 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 will build their own helium drones and explore different aspects of the framework – from sculpting their own balloon shapes to choosing an appropriate propulsion technology to designing a scenography and light setting with the help of projection mapping. Curated by Martin Fröhlich and Denise Lampart, some of the results of the workshop will become part of the performance.
