By artists Michael Thomas Hill, Indigo Hanlee and Lightwell, Dyeing Breath is a three-screen video installation comprising of an iPad interface and a C++ app. The program warps 360-degree video footage shot with a 6 camera Go-Pro rig.
Dyeing Breath won the Chippendale New World Art Prize 2016, in response to the theme of spirit.
In addition to the installation documentation below, a low-res, single-screen WebGL version of the program can be viewed here.
Dyeing Breath is an unveiling of our environment’s ever-present spirit. As the landscape exhales, plumes of brightly coloured smoke reveal a hidden life force. These vibrant breaths hang against their environment in moving clouds of colour - the invisible has been made visible.
Visitors can use the zoom, scale and axis sliders on the interface to change the views of the video.
