Creator’s Project: Interactive Light Installation Brings Media Art Into Real World Experinence


immersive lighting experience

Muti Randolph takes new media and lighting installation technology to bring visual arts literally into a new dimension. In 2013, interactive art installations are exploding out from 2 dimensional containers and  becoming wearable designs or room ambiance or video art experiences.

Step inside Muti Randolph’s interactive light installation Deep Screen at The Creators Project New York Event.

Terrestrial Sonata #1 – Ambient Video Series #1 by Mark Gould


Similar to Lost Heaven, a large number of photographic images, long exposures of lights and motion, were processed and composed into video with music. The approach of this (and other) ambient video work is with the intent of a “painting in motion,” such that if it were used in an installation the video would be slowed down considerably. I’ve picked up the speed on this version to keep your attention, but plan to submit this to festivals and exhibitions. As mentioned I’m also very open to collaborations with ambient musicians and record labels who might have opportunities or venues to pair up their artists with video artists. Contact me here.

Lost Heaven – Video for Ambient Music #2


video artist: Mark Gould


Instead of dissolves, I tried optical frame blending at the suggestion of someone on the Studio Artist users group forum. You get some interesting morph-like transitions which gives the piece a more organic feel. Thanks to Lucas. Images started as original photography, long exposures of lights and motion, then processed by the great paint synthesizer (and so much more,) Studio Artist by Synthetik,

For installation works my vision is that the change rate of the image would be slowed down considerably. Think about a painting in motion, but almost imperceptibly.

I’m using Creative Commons music from SoundCloud for the early parts of the project. I’m seeking to collaborate with a musician/composer and/or record label who has the need, or is interested in having a video that more closely matches the music.

The utility of the notion of a topology is shown by the fact that there are several equivalent definitions of this structure. A topological space is a set X with a collection of subsets of X, called Open Sets.
