Aurora

An interactive light work, commissioned by the Centre for Visual Arts in Cardiff in 1998 to celebrate the opening of the new gallery. Microphones placed around the building recorded the sounds of shoppers, street traders, buskers and delivery vehicles, storing the information on tape before using it to drive banks of coloured light throughout the building. The different sound sources were mixed and the range of frequencies used to trigger different coloured lights depending on the nature of the sound. This light portrait of the days’ activity was recorded daily to create a new light display each evening and ran automatically for one month.
