MICRO explores the small universe that is our body and mind. It consists of an 10ft x 14 ft x 10ft structure that has 200 translucent balls hanging from the top of the structure, each ball containing a speaker. When a ball is bumped into it generates a unique sound, and lights up with one of 5 different colors. As people play with the balls they are engulfed by a symphony of lights and sounds surrounding them on all sides.
MICRO was an honorarium installation at Burning Man 2014. Throughout the week, there were a number of dance performances with the piece. The video highlights a few excerpts from those performances.
