WE WERE INVITED BY BÄBEL TO CREATE LARGE FORMAT PROJECTIONS FOR A DANCE AND ACROBATICS SHOWCASE IN THE BROOKLYN NAVY YARD’S SPIRITED DUGGAL GREENHOUSE. OUR INSPIRATIONS WERE DRAWN FROM MYTHOLOGICAL ARCHETYPES TO FRACTAL GEOMETRY TO GOOGLE’S MACHINE LEARNING ALGORITHM KNOWN AS ‘DEEP DREAM’. THE RESULT WAS A NIGHT OF MYSTICAL PLAY AND JAW-DROPPING ACROBATICS WHERE TECHNOLOGY AND PERFORMANCE CAME TOGETHER TO CREATE SOMETHING ENTIRELY NEW.
Step into the enormous Duggal Greenhouse and immediately you are surrounded by 50’+ visuals of a psychedelic rainforest. Over 5,000 people surround you, along with foliage and various elements of the jungle. The sounds of DJ Black Coffee echo throughout as acrobats tumble through the air. Each of the performers is highlighted by the projection, moving in and out of the virtual landscape we crafted from deep in the collective unconscious.
