This week we are preparing the gym to house an interactive A/V installation. In the gym, totems with motion sensors will activate sounds and projections on a large hexagonal display, allowing visitors to organically create their own experience. Visiting artist Dave Watkins has been integral to creating this portion of the exhibit. Dave runs A/V at the Richmond Ballet. He is also deeply involved in the music scene as a musician, collaborator, and producer. It's such a privilege to have him on board!
Yesterday, Dave came to share his sounds + magic with us at our after school program, Future Flyers. Students experimented with sounds on his dulcitar and his sequence of effects, and got to hear him perform a few songs. Then the students and Dave experimented with the LEAP motion sensors, and worked on videos. The students were amazed at the possibilities and had a blast creating their own sounds and motions with Dave's assistance!
