Movement Triggers Floor Lighting At Wu Kingdom HelV Relics Museum

“Wu Kingdom HelV Relics Museum Implementation”

Like a number of tech-related posts at DanceLand this short documentary clip on a museum installation at the Wu Kingdom HelV Relics Museum in China isn’t an example of dance per se but rather of a tech/human movement relationship that has possibilities for dance creation.

The above video focuses on the movement-triggered floor lighting aspects of the installation:

“Visitors are immersed in a 15-minute story about the rise of the Kingdom of Wu during the Spring and Autumn Period between 514–496 BC. We created a unique visual style as a mix of cinematic martial arts scenes shot in Shanghai combined with paint-style animations.”

“The linear storytelling is enhanced with interactive elements that reinforce the visitors’ feeling of being transported back in time, away to king HelV’s coming into power, his fight for hegemony, the victory at the battle of Boju and other great legends of that period.”

For a better look at the wall projections which illustrate the story you can check out this video.
