For this installative performance I was commissioned to develop a custom software to generate, live, the 3d textures and the behaviors of a icospherical dome. De development was made in TouchDesigner, that allows the live visuals to be responsive, not only to de sound but to the movement of the performer.
The software has a visual interface and a MiDi controlled interface. That allows me to change all the visual aspects of the dome, as well as give the dome multiple personalities that change according to the inputs of different sensors.

Fiction, Curiosity Cabinet and fragment of our present and future: “Hybris” is an installative performance project inspired by the “Grolar Paradox” – the pairing of grizzly and polar bears discovered a few years ago. The word “hybrid” in Latin means “bastard” or “hybrid” and comes originally from ancient Greek. It described the presumptuous disregard for the privacy of others, coupled with the inability to control one’s own impulses. Hybris was madness as a punishment of God.
“Hybris” is also a metaphor for human influence on the world: although there have always been changes and hybridizations in nature, in our time, the “Anthropocene,” man-made mutations and metamorphoses have increased in speed and created new landscapes and living beings.
La Quinta del Lobo, founded in 2010 in Bogotá, Colombia, is an interdisciplinary group that explores the links between new media, sound and music with the performing arts and is supported by the Universidad de los Andes. For their projects they work together with different artists and artistic practices.
