Squidsoup is returning to the city with two new installations—one at SMoCA and one at the Scottsdale Waterfront- for 2019 Canal Convergence | Water + Art + Light:
“Standing Wave” is the first artwork to be announced for Canal Convergence. The installation will use 600 interconnected orbs of light and sound to simulate a wave over the Arizona Canal. The orbs will act in choreographed harmony to create a series of emotive and enticing environments, referencing standing waveforms in canyons and canals.
“Murmuration,” a site-specific artwork, will use a networked data system to connect hundreds of lights and audio sources, creating a responsive data swarm. During the daytime, “Murmuration” will offer a harmonious auditory experience, but when the sun goes down, a dynamic audiovisual experience will swirl around the Scottsdale Museum of Contemprary Art like its namesake — a term for a flock of starlings whirling in unison through the sky.
