The aerial cinema project seeks to explore emerging communication interfaces by inverting typical spatial relationships between viewer and moving image.
Live feeds from other event sites are projected in microcinema booths, creating a network hub, which in turn becomes part of a larger aerial composition.
Leaning back and looking towards the sky one experiences another place in the city. Above the cluster, a suspended camera looks down and captures all three projected live video feeds at once, displaying them in an aerial composition on the internet.
Each pod was designed carefully o be comfortable for one person at a time, to create an individual experience during a time of public gathering.
For one night the Halifax Library Plaza is transformed into an interactive hub of information.
The aerial cinema explores the interplay between live video feeds and architecture in the public realm. Three pods sit in a cluster, each hosting a live video feed from different nocturne sites.
Looking up a 1:1 intimate experience with audio and visual. Looking down a camera captures collective information and transmits this to the internet in real time.
From the sidewalk the pods hint at their true expression and function, which must be discovered by exploring the other side.
