Gate | Pavilion | Built
May 2011 | Istanbul | Turkey
Gate is an entrance for a music festival called Miller Freshtival. It is designed as an interstellar door opening to a parallel universe. The teleport gate experience is based on a simple perception rule: movement is referential. As you enter the gate you trigger an animation that is based on your motion inside the container. The “media space” starts moving with or against you, to distort your speed thus creating a time wrap illusion.
An interior LED screen is filtered twice to shape the light inside the space. The first layer is a white diffuser; the second layer is a parametrically patterned image of a forest visualized by linear cuts.
