Celestial Attraction



 

Celestial Attraction is an audio/visual installation that explores science, sound, and dance. Dancers are captured from four angles and displayed on a four-way projection surface. Computer simulated bodies orbit around the dancers following Newton’s law of universal gravitation that influences the motion of dancers and celestial bodies by the same mathematical principles. Each celestial body is sonified through a surround sound system according to its orbital position and velocity. The orbital dance evolves from ordered to increasingly chaotic behavior that is complex and unpredictable.
