Imagiro

CHiKA

“Imagiro" is an interactive installation. The viewer's presence functions as a prism - breaking white light into a spectrum of colorful abstract imagery that is projected onto a 2D then 3D shifting origami surface.

Imagine if you had the power to control light and space? "Imagiro" gives you that power. You are the creator of an engaging visual-sensory experience. Simply by standing in front of the installation, you become a prism, breaking white light into colorful abstract imagery that instantly projects onto an origami-like surface. Corresponding to your movement within the space, the planes begin to shift and unfold, becoming 3-dimensional. When you walk away, the installation returns its original condition: a flat with white light projection. The boundary between art and viewer is erased — your physical body activates and controls this installation.
