you are the one

An Immersive Audiovisual Performance by WILLPOWER LIFEFORCE of WILLPOWER STUDIOS.

YOU ARE THE ONE happened at an event named ‘Visual Reality’ in Santa Monica — California, based on VR Experiences, Sound Healing Frequencies with the SubPac and Immersive Projections.


THE UPPA

A Sound Reactive Octahedron Origami Structure.

THE UPPA signifies staying high above the negative energies of others and the world. It is about not letting the negative judgement of others hurt us or bring us mentally down. We stay true to ourselves in a high vibrational state no matter what.

MULTI-DIMENSIONAL

An Interactive Sound Reactive Light Structure

It takes sound for the structure to light up. Music or/and the human voice activates it for example. The structure occupies the space and holds a certain presence. It is made out of squares interlinked in a cluster. They all have perpendicular relationships and are all parallel to one another. I build them without a sketch. I simply started building out of thick board like paper. I cut pieces into my first square, and kept building form there. The visualization was in my head. I programmed the light to react to sound using Processing, which is a java-based open source programming language. I mapped each piece using x,y coordinates. I did not use a software to map the structure. I have more control if I map it with code. I wanted to keep building the structure, but it had to be ready for the opening of POP UP Fashion Berlin. It is a clothing, accessories, art store based in Berlin, and this location is in a mall called BIKINI in West Berlin. I want to build a structure like this that is about 10-meters wide and 6-meters high. It should have multiple faces, making it in total 40-meters wide. It will make it an immersive world of wonder.
