Electroland Art Installation Creates A Sensory Skate Park

Electroland Art Installation Creates A Sensory Skate Park

A room mounted with fluorescent light beams and dynamic sound throws viewers into a multi-sensory experience in Los Angeles.

Don Michael Acelar De Leon

Artists at Electroland have created ‘SKATE1.0′ an interesting light and sound installation at the A+D Museum in Los Angeles for the ongoing ‘COME IN! 2: SURF.SKATE.BIKE’ exhibition.

Consisting of 60 four-foot HO fluorescent lights with dimming electronic ballasts and a 12.2-channel sound system, SKATE 1.0 aims to channel a virtual skate park wherein sounds of skateboarders travel above, below, around, and through viewers while the lights register their movement and intensity. From the artists:

 We see the SKATE 1.0 installation as an opportunity to create iterative spatial experiments, using sound and light to create an immersive sensorial experience. The only reference to a specific subject or context is sounds made by skateboards; otherwise the physical installation is extremely abstract and minimal. Skate sounds are grating and violent, and we want to investigate how lights can correspond, counter or reinforce sounds.
