optical speedup

Sarah Hausmann / Clara Schuster

Concept | This project attempts to connect a person's movement in space to the gestalt of the spatial surfaces. In the moire effect we found a way to covert movement directly into surface properties.

The result is an object that is something between a spatial body and a surface and that generates different overlay patterns depending upon the position of the observer. A moving observer can see light and dark waves washing over the surface.  

Implementation | The Moiré effect appears when fine regular grids were superimposed. The grids either have to have the same size and be overlaid at an angle or have slightly differing sizes. When observed while in motion, two superimposed fixed grid levels generate a dynamic overlay pattern.
