1024 Architecture brings tech-installation Hypercube to New Forms Festival
It was Close Encounters of the Cool Kind.
France's 1024 Architecture brought a taste of their Parisian-influenced take on urban culture to the New Forms Festival at the Hangar on September 13 with Hypercube.
Hypercube, a futuristic-looking 10-metre cube made with scaffolding and decked out with 49 MIDI–controlled lights, was constructed by three Vancouverites according to the design of 1024 Architecture. (For more information about it, read this Georgia Straight article by Alex Varty.)
Audiences could watch the Live/Work performance, which combined a light show with an electronic and industrial soundtrack (which repeated throughout the night), either from outside the structure...
...or inside. A rug was placed in the centre of the hollow structure, where many people chose to either sit or lie down. (Alas, much to everyone's disappointment, no one was beamed up to the mothership at the end.)
Here's a video of an exterior shot of the Hypercube in action.
And here's what it looked like from the inside.
