a maze of shifting light by random international

 

Random International’s never-before-seen Living Room installation in Miami explores the ‘impact of technological development on the human condition.’ The work makes use of Web3 to expand the possibilities of immersive art. Like a living entity, the vertical beams of light, fog, and sound together respond to the movements of the occupants to create a glimmering and ever-changing atmosphere. Within the space, all physical boundaries and sense of direction seem to vanish, truly immersing the visitor in a luminous maze.

translating the space into an nft

 

The first variation of Random International’s Living Room is scored by Max Richter. As visitors navigate through the installation, their movement inside Living Room is tracked and recorded by an array of motion sensors. Every individual’s unique data can be visualized and compressed as a looped video, which visitors can collect as an NFT on Aorist’s marketplace by utilizing their entry ticket’s unique ID.

 

The data that Living Room is gathering will accumulate throughout the lifespan of the artwork, creating a visual archive of the installation’s ‘life’ that will be minted as an NFT, making it the first archive of an immersive artwork to be stored on the blockchain.
