I presented a new interactive artwork, Beatdice, as part of the Vivid Light Walk 2015.
Beatdice is a collaborative experience where a group of people create a light sculpture out of large cubes. The orientation of each cube selects musical content. Rearranging the sculpture rearranges the song. The cubes are embossed on each side with dice like patterns so they are accessible for those with low vision.
When I learnt about music in school if you couldn’t play an instrument you couldn’t participate. The concept behind Beatdice is to empower everyone to participate in a musical collaboration regardless of their physical skill with an instrument.
