R in the Matrix installation at Hopscotch. Walking between those vertical layers of lights really gives you that "matrixy" feeling of diving into an abstract digital space -- at least when the lights are all lit up in white. Less so when they change to red. I distinctly recognize that feeling from some movies, though I can't name any particular movie where I experienced it (no, not "The Matrix").
Hopscotch was an interactive light and sound art installation that took place in Austin in February and March of 2019.
Here is the official description of the Matrix project:
"Matrix is a large and immersive visual and sonic experience. Viewers are invited to walk through three thousand pixels of suspended light. Volumetric animations synchronized with sound move and dance around viewers creating waves of light.
Dom Davis is a visual artist whose work focuses on creating a dialog between the audience and the space around them. He does this through the means of interactive technology, programming, light and video. His work can be found at events, festivals, and live concerts typically are accompanied by musical acts or performers as part of installation or a stage design.
Malika Boudissa sculpts multisensory spaces by utilizing and merging various technologies. With her primary medium of sound, she synthesizes and designs enveloping auditory experiences. In Matrix, she invites you to play and melt in sonic reverie.
