‘Captured Atmospheres’ by NaiveLaser

Captured atmosphere is a sculptural environment that utilizes real time laser techniques and physical computing to create an immersive multi-sensory experience.

Exploring ideas of perceptual phenomena as a mechanism to re-frame the built environment, Captured Atmosphere playfully abstracts and reconfigures both architectural material and ephemeral matter. Through the use of actuated materials, light, and smoke the experience is organized as a series of vignettes that create an augmented expose of the intangible.
