Arboreal Lightning is an interactive installation for exhibitions and performances that transforms sound and gesture into an immersive luminous environment.
A lightweight central structure bundles together a series of LED-strip fibres that burst from the stage & soar above the performers, luminously reacting to sounds and gestures. The ‘branches’ arch along the Roundhouse structure, a few bowing down into the audience – rewarding participatory interaction.
Arboreal Lightning was commissioned from Atmos by Imogen Heap as the centrepiece for Reverb 2014, and has grown to be resident centrepiece for the Roundhouse’s Summer Sessions.
Arboreal Lightning will be open to all Reverb Main Space ticketholders during performances – non-ticketholders can access during the following times:
Thu 21 Aug: 11.30pm – 12am
