Leviathan’s Metamorphosis is an audiovisual odyssey that extracts brilliant color data from masterpieces of the past century to create an entirely new experience of art.

 

Medium: Audio Video

Date: 2018

Employing newly developed coding techniques, Leviathan dissects a curated selection of paintings into abstract digital forms. The generative visuals, which are set rhythmically to a composed ambient soundscape, evolve through time and space — transforming the unique LED canvas at Dolby Gallery into an immersive, meditative experience.

This synergy between sight and sound is custom-designed for Dolby Gallery. Rich color volume data, inspired by Dolby Vision® technology, is brought to life along with a sonic experience mixed in Dolby Atmos®. Moving audio dynamically travels across 52 full-range speakers and 34 subwoofers to immerse visitors in a fusion of art and science.

Leviathan is a specialized experiential design studio, based in Chicago, Illinois. Working at the nexus of design, digital media, and interaction, Leviathan transforms ambitious ideas into future-forward experiences.
