LAMP is the immersive installation I designed and led development of at Arcosanti, Arizona from 2015-2020. Arcosanti is a unique architectural destination which draws 40,000+ visitors a year. People from across the world visit for music, performances, retreats, and studying the architecture.
LAMP is a play space for all aspects of the Arcosanti amphitheater and visitor path. Lights can be interactive, based on movement, sound and other triggers. The 10,000+ LEDs can be controlled via hand gestures from an augment reality headset, automatically from environmental factors, and elaborately via a command center. LAMP transforms the experience of space in this Urban Laboratory in profound new ways in real-time.
Recently, LAMP has added spatial audio (3D sound) to the physical environment, creating light-sound syncopation and producing synesthetic experiences that are at the leading-edge in this medium. VR is also now being used to control LAMP, creating new cross reality immersive control capabilities for hundreds of audience members at a time. For more, see my Arco XR project and it's external website.
