    QUASAR

    @ Southern California Institute of Architecture |SCI-Arc Gallery - 960 e. 3rd st. Los Angeles| 2008


    Quasar is an immersive light and sound space made from prototype membranes and realized as an interactive light/sound field comprised of a dense array of interlinked elements describing an intricate three-dimensional structure. The gallery is fitted with sensors that draw real-time data from the installation and the people within the exhibition, which is then synchronized with streamed real-time data of solar activity and nuclear processes provided by SLAC and NASA. This information is then fed back into the object through layers of LED strands, re-visualizing the space in order to create an interactive spatial experience.

    The word "quasar" is a contraction of the term quasi-stellar-radio-source, used historically by astronomers to describe entirely unknown cosmological objects. Today, it is believed that quasars are the most distant, and yet still detectable, objects in the universe. Giving off enormous amounts of energy produced from massive black holes in the center of their own galaxies, quasars are intensely bright; their emitted light drowning out all other stars in the same galaxy.

    The exhibition draws on slap!’s continued interest in developing an awareness of the interconnectedness of space and material, with a goal of extending established notions of volume and scale. Quasar is an artificial counterpart hovering in response to the currents and activities of the visitors, and in doing so, stretches and collapses the horizons of the unknown. The possibilities of interrelated synthetic and natural processes begin to define new emergent ecologies. Quasar questions the boundaries of scale and the psyche, offering immersion into a vastly expanded space which renders perception permeable, and in the end, disperses identity.

    "...From then on, I, a nebula of confused elements, move among finished worlds - you have complete laws and pure order, your thoughts are assorted, your dreams are arranged, and even your visions are enrolled and registered. I measure time according to the movement of countless suns; and you measure time by little machines in your pockets. Now tell me, how could we ever meet at the same place and the same time?”
