Moiré Room


Showing daily at Meow Wolf Denver.

"Moiré Room" is an interactive audiovisual space; a meditative and dissonant op art visual system accompanied by cyclical waves of sound. Black and white patterns emerge as multiple data streams feed into its visual algorithms, creating unique moments never to be seen again. "Moiré Room" can be calming one moment and anxious the next, as sound and shape evolve together over time.

Slowly-oscillating parameters endlessly reshape the base graphical form, while an undulating generative soundtrack deforms the visual patterns as its intensities fluctuate. As visitors enter "Moiré Room", their physical movement is tracked by infrared cameras, which further permutes the patterns into unique, fleeting forms.

I was intrigued by the ways that moiré patterns can alter your sense of vision, even after looking away. I wanted to exploit this effect and explore how audio accompaniment could intensify the visual experience. The graphics system has an infinite number of formations, and I wanted the sound to do the same. Using similar concepts of randomization and parameterization, visitors will never hear or see the same moment twice.
