AURA/L is a prototype of an audiovisual instrument you play with your presence. Upon entry into the installation your body becomes an ever-changing soundscape that shifts along with your movements. In its final form participants will be able to interact with other pariticipants as well as visual elements in the space to create a collaborative and generative audiovisual experience.
The concept of human auras refers to the subtle energy fields that surround the physical body and are believed to contain information about a person’s emotional, mental, and spiritual states. Capturing and visualizing these energy fields offers a glimpse into the invisible interactions of individuals as we enter each other’s orbits. With a greater awareness of these invisible forces, how might we approach carrying ourselves through public space with increased intention?
