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.
The video installation was exhibited at The Old Rum Store in Chippendale, curated by the Chippendale Creative Precinct.
