MULTILAYER is a three-dimensional installation. Using the superposition of transparent layers a volumetric video effect is created, generating floating images, in a dialogue between rhythm and space, giving the first step towards a new concept of holographic cinema. Multilayer has its own post-production work flow to create, edit and play sectioned images, so the viewer perceives them as a single one.
A FILM ABOUT THE REFUGEE CRISIS
The first piece created specifically for Multilayer is “WELCOME”, a monochromatic film midway between semi-abstract graphic animation and fictional narrative. It describes the current situation of the refugees around the world. It is a self-critical reflection on something that disturbs us, given that today we are passive witnesses of the largest migratory flow since the Second World War.
THE DIRECTORS OF “WELCOME”
Mariona Omedes and Carles Mora, both from nueveojos studio, have directed together many video art projects such as large format set designs, multimedia shows and video installations for museums.
THE POWERFUL IMMERSIVE EFFECT of Multilayer lies in live viewing, with no need of any additional device to capture the 3D experience. This new dimension generated through a synchronic multilayer projection, poses a challenge for the exploration of a new visual language.
A special case works as a black box that prevents light leaks and enhances the immersive effect and the object as an exhibition element. The indoor Multilayer becomes a perfect set-up to be exhibited in museums and art galleries. This black box also allows the installation to be placed on a non-dark spaces.
The outdoor Multilayer set-up increases the audience eld of view, being able to absorb more public. It has a minimalist design, perfect for a quick assembly. Suitable to coexist with adverse weather conditions, it easily integrates into different landscapes, and is ideal for taking part in light festivals or other outdoor events.
& LIVE SHOWS
Multilayer works also in real time, with a new GPU’s based software (by Smode Technology). The installation can be part of live shows offering visual effects in real time, light synchronization and interactivity. Vj’s and DJ’s can be placed between the layers. The size and number of these layers can be customized, offering infinite scenography possibilities.
