Best Interactive Art Installations of 2015

The year 2015 was on the cutting edge of the art and technology and the next year is definitely going to be following this path. A lot of art installations of 2015 we dedicated to the view, the user and the only beholder of the criticism. There is no better critic than a feedback from an audience. Below we posted the best of interactive project shown to public in various locations during the year

 

Neon Golden’s SWARM

“Over 2,000 delicate LEDs fill the Olympus Photography Playground in artist collective Neon Golden’s SWARM, the lights’ soft, electric emissions buzzing through the 850-cubed-foot space in Vienna. Engineered with a combination of Arduino, Cinema 4D, Raspberry Pi, and Processing, the audiovisual installation reacts to movement, placing its visitors inside a colorful, carefully coded 3D environment.” http://vimeo.com/119266974

Golem x MBA

The Lyon Museum of Fine Arts asked artist Arnaud Pottier to bring sculptures, including Laurent Honore Marqueste’s Perseus Slaying Medusa, James Pradier’s Odalisque, and Barrias’ Les Premières Funérailles, to life. His method was pretty simple: He used projection mapping, which can turn anything—including statues—into a display. http://vimeo.com/131201461

 

 

Antrum Installation by Matrioshka

Antrum Spatio-Graphical Interactive Installation looks like a grotto of the membrane, the surface of which is inhabited by strange creatures. It’s complex structure causes association with living creatures, space objects and architectural constructions. In this frontier word pure mathematical abstractions are mixed with natural shapes, resulting in formation of new entities. Viewers can push the membrane and try to contact with them. Project realised by Russians: Tatiana Plakhova (more) and mathrioshka.ru of Eduard Haiman & Vadim Smakhtin http://vimeo.com/130972302 http://vimeo.com/130454184

 

 

TUNDRA x SILASVETA – EPICENTER

One of the best electronic light and projection mapping studios in the world (yes, literally), Russians – TUNDRA and SilaSveta collaborated together to produce an EPICENTER immersive installation to celebrate 7th Anniversary of ARMA17 in Moscow “Each group created an installation that places the viewer in the “epicenter of borderless creativity.” Tundra’s piece, Halo, creates eerie scenes such as a lightning storm and a fire, playing with space and criss-crossing beams of light. A figure weaves in and out of the beams, getting closer and closer but ultimately disappearing into the darkness. The soundtrack consists of choral music overlaid with what sounds like either rain or a scorching forest.” says The Creators Project http://vimeo.com/143827409

 

 

Infinity Room by Refik Anadol

“Los Angeles based Turkish artist Refik Anadol wants us to slow down and make technology into something we consciously see and feel..His most recent installation, titled the “Infinity Room” at Zorlu Performing Art Center in Turkey, is a trippy, black and white installation that uses audio and visual stimulation to alter one’s sense of the room. For this, he installed a cinema screen, onto which 3D kinetic animation based on algorithms was projected. It is part of his ongoing project titled, “Temporary Immersive Environment Experiments,” which takes the idea of immersion. Immersion into virtual reality is a perception of being physically present in a non-physical world.” via Hi-Fructose http://vimeo.com/141749628
