PIVOT POINT - ICHIHARA 2020-2021

'Pivot Point - Ichihara' is an interactive site-specific installation that is commissioned by the 'Boso-Satoyama Art Festival ICHIHARA ART x MIX in Japan. Standing on a controller pod you navigate over and through a 3D terrain where gravity seems to have disappeared, you gradually become tele-present in a parallel projected space by exploring a mediated version of the venue, it's direct surroundings and the Ichihara region. A cinematic journey to a fascinating point cloud realm, precise in details but simultaneously abstract and dreamlike.

The kidney shaped interface is covered with capacitive sensors and mounted on a pole, touching this interface right, left, up or down aims the virtual camera accordingly. When you release the navigation pole the virtual camera automatically starts spiralling back to the initial starting point your journey and temporary centre of the universe, the Asohbara Art House.

The event is re-scheduled and the installation will now have it's premiere in March 2021.
