Deep Web is a monumental immersive audiovisual installation and live performance created by light artist Christopher Bauder and composer and musician Robert Henke was presented at the Festival of Lights Lyon in December 2016.
The generative, luminous architectural structure weaves 175 motorized spheres with Winch LED and 12 high power laser systems into a high super-structure, bringing to life a luminous analogy to the nodes and connections of digital networks. Moving up and down, and choreographed and synchronized to an original multi-channel musical score by Robert Henke, the spheres are illuminated by blasts of colourful laser beams resulting in three-dimensional sculptural light drawings and arrangements in cavernous darkness.
The high-precision motor winch systems and main control software were provided by KINETIC LIGHTS, while the high-end laser system manufacturer LaserAnimation Sollinger provided the technical expertise and development for this very specific spatial laser setup. The work was produced by WHITEvoid and in cooperation with local producer TETRO+A.
