For this looking outwards, I decided to study Yael Braha, a large-scale dynamic display designer that combines traditional and non-traditional art practices, including ceramics, metal fabrication, metal casting, electronics, and mold making. She is originally from Italy where she studied Graphic Design at the European Institute of Design in Rome and then moved to the United States for her Master of Fine Arts in Cinema at San Francisco State University.
One of her works that I found interesting was Artifacts, audio-reactive live show for the Minnesota Orchestra. The visuals are generated based on the timbre, amplitude, frequencies, patterns and narrative of the orchestra’s score in real time. It was captivating to see how she was able to merge a traditional experience of watching a symphony into something surreal, fantastical, and progressive.
