Scream And Shout To Illuminate The Church

July 18, 2009 Leave a comment

Evoke is an interactive installation which lights up an entire building facade, and allows the public to create light patterns using voice control.

Evoke was on display at this year’s Illuminating York festival. York Minster Cathedral’s entire western facade was used as a projection screen for a huge 80,000 lumen projector. Members of the public with voices of different frequencies, rhythms and other characteristics were able to evoke an almost endless number of different visual patterns that would fill the entire facade of the cathedral.

The animations were “intelligent”, meaning that they, apart from traveling across the surface of the building, would also disappear through windows and other parts of the physical structure.

Check out the video of people screaming and shouting to evoke the visuals!
