Flox, at HCL

Premieres July 23rd 7-10pm
reprise showings July 24th and 25th 6-8pm
Head over to HCL for the World Premiere of 'Flox', created by HCL Artist-in-Residence, Jason Ponce.

Flox is an interactive sound installation that upsets the one-to-one relationship that often characterizes interactive artworks. Instead of putting the individual at the center of the experience, Flox centers around group coordination. As visitors step into a motion-captured space, each person's body is assigned one component of an active but disorganized soundscape, which must be reassembled by active listening and coordinated movement. Wireless luminescent pods carried by each visitor provide visual feedback about the state of the installation, and help guide the group towards a final resolution of the piece.

Complimentary wine and assorted edibles will be provided.
