I was inspired by James Turrell and his work of lights. I wanted to find out myself the experience visitors feel when they experience a James Turrell artwork. I also imagine that in my final piece, I would want a segment where only LED Lights will be on. I also want to push the boundaries of Dome artworks and I want to introduce the LED lights inside the dome.I make use of the half Dome, which is also known as the iDome, to experiment with the lights. I attached LED lights onto the edges of the dome, which in turn, create some kind of effect. Even though I only have 2 strips, I am able to visualise the effect it has.
It almost feel like a giant earth. I feel having more lights around this half dome will improve the experience.
I tried juxaposing it with footages that is available in the computer to get a sense of scale and dynamic between the screen two mediums.
The next step is for me to get more LED lights and make one whole round on the iDome.
After the first presentation of my Final Year Project, I realised the semester is not that long after all. Up to that point, I wasn’t sure of what my directions are but thanks to my supervisor Prof. LP, I stick to my main idea which is to use the Dome. With the help of Prof. LP as well in giving inputs, I am going to built a structure inside the dome to raise the eye level of the visitor. While the idea of raising the eye level is not clearly define yet at the moment, but what is clear is that there will be a device that will facilitate the movement of the visitor to help the visitor to experience a more immersive experience inside the dome. I will be sharing works of immersive installation that inspiring and useful in my ideation stage.
