An immersive digital sculpture filling Casula Powerhouse’s Performance Space, the Mind at Work is a dancing pulsating chandelier-like structure of spatialised light and sound. It plays out the eddies and bursts of an idling mind, perhaps a mind in isolation, deep in thought or quiet contemplation. The Mind at Work is a distributed computing system that controls 200 lights and 100 speakers, controlled by 50 small microcomputers that talk to teach other over a network to create a dynamic whole, performing rich massively parallel sound synthesis that creates an immersive sonic space.
