5D immersive, interactive, experience design is one of the newest design domains. New York based Light Harvest Studio designs and creates large-scale 5D immersive works in multimedia.
Light Harvest says, "Architectural, site-specific, video installations have taken the beloved art of the moving image and released it from the confines of the traditional viewing environment. From concerts and parties, to fine art galleries and museums, content is now free to travel, interact and respond to the environment."
Their work has been commissioned by Universal Studios, Diesel, The United Nations, The Guggenheim Museum, Adidas, Daft Punk, NASA, Kenji Williams and many others.
“Immersive Surfaces” was a publicly presented video projection installation onto the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn during the Dumbo Arts Festival from September 23 - 25, 2011. The multi- part video projection, created by over 20 international artists and curators, covered over 30,000 sq. feet of the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage, Archway and the surrounding cityscape, through the use of cutting-edge video mapping technology.
Immersive Surfaces explores ideas of “crowd art,” and the meaning of surface as a media platform in a specific cityscape. Presented in three phases, Immersive Surfaces presents 18 works in a more traditional video art format, on a projected, Op-Art background, which animates itself in the second part of the program before leading into the climactic third section of the show:
“As Above – So Below,” is the featured piece which the image above is taken from. It consists of a video mapped projection installation, conceived and created by a group of six artists, Simon Anaya, Farkas Fulop, Richard Jochum, Johnny Moreno, John Ensor Parker & Ryan Uzilevsky. With significant sponsorship from visual production company Senovva, Light Harvest Studio, and others, the artists developed a site-specific, multi-perspective 3D installation specially designed to the scale of the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage in Brooklyn.
