Singing Garden (2010)
3D Animation, Custom Programming, Microphone, Video Projection
Inspired by 19th Century botanical illustration, "Singing Garden" features a virtual, moonlit water garden in which the plants flourish to the tones of the singing voice.
"Singing Garden" is a response to the critical eye I cast on video game violence in an earlier project. I am seeking to expand the notion of what video games are and can be. In the piece, I harness the tonality and versatility of the human voice to nurture and sustain, rather than expend and destroy.
