SAKURA-YUME + LATE SUMMER + IN-EI | MUSIC FOR INTERACTIVE INSTALLATIONS AND LIVE CALLIGRAPHY
2018 | ARTECHOUSE, WASHINGTON D.C. USA
Corey Fuller was commissioned by Artechhouse in Washington DC to create and contribute 3 compositions for a series of installations and events surrounding the annual Cherry Blossom Festival: Sakura-Yume, a long-form musical piece for this two month long immersive, interactive installation, Late Summer from Seas Between for an interactive dining experience installation, and IN-EI, for a special live calligraphy performance by Aoi Yamaguchi.
SAKURA YUME // Cherry Blossom Dream is a large-scale seasonal installation curated by ARTECHOUSE and showcasing the works of Noirflux, Storylab, Karan Parikh & Nathan Solomon, Aoi Yamaguchi and Corey Fuller. Inspired by the longstanding Cherry Blossom tradition in its hometown Washington, DC, and in search of a perfect way to share this beautiful experience with many, ARTECHOUSE invited 3 artist groups to create a unique cherry blossom experience. These artists through their own interpretation, yet using similar tools of projection and motion depth cameras, created an immersive and interactive digital experience that not only extends this beautiful springtime celebration yet preserves the transient and ephemeral nature of it. The installation encompasses five unique activations where elements of Japanese culture and tradition become experiences at the intersection of art and technology.
