Usman Haque’s Man Made Aurora Borealis

A standout at the recent GLOW festival in Santa Monica was Usman Haque’s mind blowing art installation called Primal Source.

The changing display was controlled by crowd reaction and ambient noise. Microphones spread around the outside of the display picked up the cheers and shouts of the crowd which were then translated into the patterns and colors on the water screen.
