ART, NATURE, LIGHT AND SOUND
NCSU COLLEGE OF DESIGN,
ADVANCED MEDIA LAB
Projected computer animations are among the first works of art visitors experience in East Building. Collaborating designers, Lee Cherry and Donnie Wrights, with Associate Professor, Pat FitzGerald from the Advanced Media Lab at the North Carolina State University, College of Design created and developed several different light and sound installations for the NCMA opening.
Above the staircase, the animation series ‘Wheels of Fortune’ displays nature imagery in parallax patterns, alongside synchronous sounds. Farther inside, visitors’ movements trigger light and sound projections onto gallery walls through an invisible interface all the while gazing at a cascading wall of images, typography and poetry in motion. In addition to the interactive events, short film animations created and produced by undergraduate students from the Art & Design program at the NCSU College of Design will be showcased in the exhibit space along the lower entrance level.
