Firewall

An interactive fabric surface that reminded me of the old AudioRom days back in Newport.

Firewall is an interactive media installation created with Mike Allison. A stretched sheet of spandex acts as a membrane interface sensitive to depth that people can push into and create fire-like visuals and expressively play music.

Developed by New York-based media artist Aaron Sherwood, ‘Firewall’ stems from a performance piece being developed as purring tiger (with kiori kawai) titled ‘Mizalu’, which will premiere in June 2013. During one scene in the performance dancers will press into the spandex with the audience facing the opposite side. ‘Mizalu’ is about death and experience of reality, so this membrane represents a plane that you can experience but never get through. As hard as you try to understand what’s in between life and death, you can never fully know.
