ENSEMBLE — EXCEL, LONDON
In collaboration with Microsoft and Centrica
Migrating to the Azure cloud has enabled Centrica to more effectively analyse and organise one of its largest datasets: the Hive remote energy management system, an intelligent cloud that imaginatively empowers us to control the world we live in.
In response to this concept, we created a shimmering digital ensemble that responds to proximity and movement. Pleated pixels are activated in unison with the sound, expanding with more intensity and volume as the viewer moves closer to different sections. Each section of the installation corresponds with a single layer of music and people are encouraged to work together to compose all of the elements of the track.
Ensemble is an audiovisual analogy, demonstrating how collectivity can create a positive and unique outcome.
