Sound design by Ben Kreukniet
"... During the 1st century BC, mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras discovered a series of relationships between geometry and harmonics. He identified that the pitch of a musical note is in proportion to the length of the string that produces it, and that intervals between harmonious sound frequencies form simple numerical ratios.
Musica Universalis is a spatial instrument that investigates the resonances from far away objects in our solar system. It comprises a series of kinetic, physical sculptures, each containing a spherical form and a mechanism driving a rotating light source and speaker. Light is cast through the space creating interventions and interactions with the architecture. Oscillations slowly drift in and out of harmony within each cell and across the series. Over time, white light shifts into its component frequencies of colour. ..."

"The minimalistic interactive installation is inspired by the avantgard artist Anthony McCall and his pieces of "solid lights". It is a remake of one of his "light sculptures" with the added ability to respond to touch."

"Created with hundreds of pencils and hundreds of hands, "349" is a collaborative animated dance film that explores the idea that we're all imperceptibly connected.
To create "349," a dance performance was videotaped and converted into a series of still frames. Over the span of two years, 349 different people each redrew one of these frames after being asked to "draw yourself and someone with whom you have a significant connection." The resulting drawings were scanned, sequenced, and synced to music to create the short animated dance film."
