I.I.L.I. was a collaboration with members of South East Makerspace to create an Immersive Interactive Light Installation that responded to the physical presence and movement of people through the exhibition space. In bringing the walls to life ephemeral visual compositions of light affected and altered the mood and experience of the surrounding space. This installation took place at 16/18 O’Connell Street, Waterford, during Imagine Arts Festival 2017.

The technical expertise for this installation was worked on by a small group of members of South East Makerspace. A kinect camera with custom made motion tracking software picks up the location and movement of people in a gameplay space within the exhibition area. The physical movements of those present cause subtle shifts or directional changes to beams of light. As the light changes, it catches fragments of reflective and translucent materials fixed within the installation area.
