Reza worked with software engineer Ryan McGee to create Concourse, an installation that comprises generative visuals and synthetics sound that come together in real-time spatial composition. During the day Concourse functions as a window into a synthetic landscape that transforms over time.
The landscape is inhabited by dynamic creatures that create sounds. As these creatures move, so do their sounds through the physical space. During the day the sound is ambient, synthesized in real-time from the landscape and its creatures. At night, Concourse uses the large luminescence LED screen as a canvas for minimal abstract monochromatic generative visual light "notes".
Fencing masks, the human face, and an original sound design come together in the latest installation to be featured in the Dolby® Gallery.
"Prime2" is the second installment in a series that explores the four stages of how we process memory. It references the way a specific memory might erode during the second stage, storage.
