FIRST THERE WAS NOTHING. A VOID STRETCHING INFINITELY TOWARDS THE DARKNESS. THEN, IT APPEARED. AN ENTITY UNEARTHED TO USHER THE VERY DAWN OF EXISTENCE. A REMNANT ARTEFACT FROM THE ALPHA OF CREATION. SENTIENT, PULSATING. ILLUMINATING AND ENDURING AEONS OF EVOLUTION. DISTORTING DIMENSIONS. THE AORTA OF THE UNIVERSE, THE BEATING HEART OF THE WORLDS.
WATCHING US IN SILENCE.

#HIDE2013 WAS AN EXHIBITION FROM THE MOTION CREATIVE AND DIGITAL MEDIA STUDENTS 2014 FROM HYPER ISLAND STOCKHOLM. INSPIRED BY THE THEME "DISTORTIONAL EVOLUTION" WE CREATED THE MONOLIT. IN COLLABORATION WITH A GROUP FROM DIGITAL MEDIA WE MADE OUR IDEA REACT WITH A HEARTBEAT FROM A SPECIFIC PERSON. BY PLACING YOUR HAND ON A SENSOR, CONNECTED TO AN ARDUINO, IT TRANSFORMED THE SIGNAL INTO A MIDI SIGNAL. THIS MIDI SIGNAL IN IT'S TURN TRIGGERED THE PROJECTIONS ON THE SCULPTURE AND THE SOUND.
