If you’re in downtown Los Angeles you might notice that one rooftop looks a little different from before. What was an empty rooftop on an unremarkable building is now a four-story immersive exploration called The Circuitry of Life: A Journey Through the Evolution of Technology.
Artist Heather Shaw conceived and organized the installation, but needed the help of 40 designers, animators, engineers, musicians, interactive sound designers and music curators.
The team worked for a full year before The Circuitry of Life went live.
Audience members stand inside the cube, which consists of enormous structural screens, and experience an interactive show in five sections:
Shaw, an LA-based futurist designer with over five years’ experience working with several A-list stars, conceived the project as an exploration of mankind’s progress from a segmented and separated species, to an interconnected community only a few steps away from a science fiction “hive mind.”
The show ran on February 20 and 21, in partnership with the Red Bull at Night program.
