Building 1 / The Movement
In a world increasingly threatened by erosion of civil rights, environmental destruction and economic disparity, The Movement presents a display of hope, faith and resoluteness.
The Movement is comprised of 3 framed prints on rice paper, each with a pixelated image generated by our own custom algorithm that is drawn from the words of a person writing while imprisoned, directly contributing to current political events.
Through AR, a visual dust storm of pixels rise from the bottom of each print. While the ‘pixeldust’ swirls, an autobiographical statement is heard/displayed from an unknown person, describing hopelessness, despair or fear expressed in that person’s life. As the voice/text ends, the pixels assemble and reveal the person’s identity, easily recognizable figures who overcame their weaknesses and made substantial contributions to our world.
