Eric Bury + Farid Noufaily – DesCours 2010 – Flicker

This installation, presented for the 2010 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

The Flicker installation proposes to create and experimental event celebrating the movement of pedestrians while invoking a long-standing New Orleans tradition of night processions.  Akin to looking in the reflection of a puddle which brings an otherwise dull sidewalk to life with a view of the sky, the reflective surfaces of the interactive flambeau columns are constantly animated by the surrounding environment: the people in the space, the color and intensity of light conditions, the viewer’s body and the viewer’s eye movement.
