By the artist:
I’ll present the creative process behind the highly IG-able immersive installation “Prismverse”. The metaphor of the Battle Royale like wearable device “Collar AG”. Using data to intervent an audiovisual performance as Observatory’s live broadcast. We’ll address questions including How mediums shape our behavior and experience? Why open data is essential for a future citizen? And how could a creator design deeply for a minority audience and yet win the appreciation from general public?

PRISMVERSE | LIGHT NOW EXHIBITION
Prismverse is an installation inspired by light rays travelling in a diamond with Brilliant cut – a form that produces phenomenal brilliance with maximized light directed through its top. With a 10 meters LED floor and the complex geometrical tessellated mirror wall, the highly illuminated interior becomes a metaphor for the instant tone-up effect of Dr.Jart+ V7 Toning Light.
A journey to unprecedented sceneries of glimmers begins at the touch of the product centered in the space. Audience will be immersed in splendors of our mother nature, ranging from the galaxy and distant stars, rare gemstones, glistens of flowing water, and refracted light beams. These resembles the brightening, moisturizing, protective and vitalizing effects of the product once applied on skin.
