Christophe Gauspohl + Mario Schambon + Leviathan – DesCours 2011 – Orogenous Zones

This installation, presented for the 2011 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

This installation is an interactive social experiment that explores the ideas of man’s dominance over nature, which paradoxically proves nature as eminent power.  It addresses ideas of fractal geometry and its analogies to the formation of natural phenomena, such as mountain erosion, coral growth and cloud formations.  Constructed in a historic bank interior, this piece is both spatially immersive and interactive via the use of sensor-driven audio.
