London-based creative studio Universal Everything has been exploring the ability of visitors to utilize their bodies and hands inside London’s Science Museum. In “Universal Everything & You,” the studio created an installation of two large artworks, specially commissioned for the museum’s media space.
One of the two works presented in the exhibition 1000 Hands, an interactive installation presents visitors with the “opportunity to scrawl on the walls of the museum” through the use of a smartphone app. You can view contributions to the piece so far online here.
After working with LA Dance Studio choreographer Benjamin Millepied and his troupe, the two have documented several motion captured performances of the dancers, creating a virtual sculpture that exists solely as documentation of an action.
The documented dances that pair up quite nicely with the music of Simon Pyke, a recording artist represented by Warp Records. In conjunction with the exhibition Pyke’s newest release will feature a screen print on one side as well as one of four prints from the exhibition. Listen to a twenty minute excerpt of the upcoming release below.
