Spectrum of baile is a large-scale, participatory art installation designed to interconnect Colombia and the United States. Powerful projections and sounds act as “bridges of light” that interconnect the cultures in a multi-sensorial experience. The piece creates a fluid projection of light that can be modified by visitors to five interactive stations, which depending on the spectators' positions the sound and the video they'll hear and see will vary.
This installation is strongly related to the travel metaphor in which not only do we aim to transport the viewers into different cultures just by changing their positions but also we used the metamorphosis as a visual representation of the changes you go through when traveling. The projector has 2 uses, one to project the video and one to create clearly defined shadows used to track people's movements.
