Blindfield

In 2010, Justin worked as part of a team of students with artist Francisco Lopez on the design, production, and installation of a sound and light installation, which was featured at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center in Troy, New York for three days.

 

This project, which was featured for three days in the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center’s Studio 1 black box studio, was the culmination of months of design iteration and physical production. The design emerged from a number of varied proposals, which were mixed and reworked over time by a team of students in collaboration with sound artist Francisco Lopez with the aim of creating a unique sonic environment to perform within. The result was a 32-channel audio/visual installation composed of a field of 100 individual hanging panels, each suspended at various heights and orientations within a 40 foot high 3,500 square foot space. Each panel was lit by a series of five LED lights, which provided the installation’s only illumination. Of the 100 panels, 32 contained small built in speakers at either end of the ten foot panel, creating a field of individual sound points scattered throughout the space. This project included the design, production, and installation of every component.
