AURA/L is an audiovisual instrument you play with your presence. Upon discovering the installation, your body begins casting a colorful halo on screen in front of you; a halo which also emits an ever-changing soundscape that shifts along with your movements. When two or more people enter the space and their auras collide in virtual space, vivid changes radiate in the audiovisual response.
The concept of human auras refers to the subtle energy fields that surround the physical body and are believed to contain information about a person's emotional, mental, and spiritual states. Capturing and visualizing these energy fields offers a glimpse into the invisible interactions of individuals as we enter each other’s orbits. With a greater awareness of these invisible forces, how might we carry ourselves through public space and in proximity to each other?
