MICRO::COSMO Interactive Audio/Visual Installation for Art Detour 2017 from casey farina on Vimeo.

In the spring of 2017, I was commissioned by the City of Phoenix to create an interactive audio/visual installation for the Intersection Event at Art Detour.

“Am I looking through a microscope or telescope?” MICRO::COSMO is a audio/visual ecosystem built on the principles that define microscopic and cosmic existence. Artistic representations of mitosis, genetic inheritance, and exocytosis (microscopic) are juxtaposed with gravitational force, super-nova, and black holes (cosmological) as a means of examining perspective in complexity. The title is an homage to Sebastian Münster’s (1488–1552) Cosmographia and Robert Hooke’s (1635 – 1703) Micrographia.
