Future Forward was an event conceived by The Creators Project and VICE in partnership with Toyota. A showcase of emerging digital artists who created a variety of kinetic, digital and light based sculptures and installations. The show toured three US cities; New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
As part of the event we created a special installation to showcase the new Toyota Prius alongside the artworks. A 49 key keyboard was installed in a bespoke transparent housing and when played, it triggered dynamic animations to play out across a pixel mapped display that was moulded over the car in a form reminiscent of aerodynamic air streams.
The public were encouraged to try it out and were also treated to special performances by various artists from VICE’s record label.
I was responsible for the design of the whole build, the logic behind the interaction and creating a collection of looping animations that the dynamic animation triggered by the keys would sit upon.
