suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
SIFT / adam FURE: Veer is a multimedia installation that transforms space, sound, and light into variable dimensions of an experiential field. A base of polyester batting wraps a branching steel structure creating a soft, interior sleeve comprised of tunnel-like folds. Participants bend and push through saturated matter, pulling sound and light from sensors embedded in the material walls. In Veer, space provokes movement, movement provokes sound, and engaged participants instigate an emergent perceptual form.
