Lace panels (3) with video projection: silkscreened, machine stitched silk organza on soluble substrates embedded with sensors, interacting with a digital interface projection of the Australian landscape.
‘InterLace is an interactive video lace installation. The work sits between the definitions of a built environment and a multimedia environment. It is a response to the space and landscape of the travels by the artists separately and together within Australia.
Designed as a visual, spatial and tangible sensory experience, the work transforms lace in a three-dimensional augmented environment. Traditional expressions of lace pattern are redefined through the use of innovative materials, process and video technologies.
Sensors stitched into fragile delicate lace surfaces detect changes in light, and the proximity and movement of the audience. The work becomes an augmented fabric, with a multiplicity of layers of image and meaning; exploring the spatial mysterious interplay between real and virtual worlds. Its layers explore light and shadow between material and ephemeral perceptions of negative and positive space.’
