Interrupt Collective

Interrupt is a collective of digital-media artists, interaction designers, live video performers and sonic artists working across a range of live performance projects and installations. The binding principle of the collective is to generate experimental work that explores the boundaries between architecture, video, performance, sound and interaction. Alongside multiple theatre projects, the members of Interrupt have been involved in The Performance Arcade Aotea Square 2011, Random Acts 2011, StageSpace 2011, The WGTN LUX Symposium 2011, The Performance Arcade 2011, Prague Quadrennial 2011, Auckland Festival of Arts and the Wellington International Arts Festival. In 2011 Interrupt also received a Best Design Award, as well as the Critics Wild Card Award at the Chapman Tripp Theatre awards for outstanding A/V design. Interrupt includes Johann Nortje, Stuart Foster, Harry Silver, Angus Woodhams, Rob Appierdo, and Kris Henning.

Geo-Ping is a spatially interactive projection mapping audio-visual environment. The project consists of projecting onto fragmented shapes, releasing an audio-visual exploration of space through viewer interaction As the viewer walks in front of the mapped surface, tracked three dimensionally in the physical and presented in the virtual world, their digital shadow splits open the edges it touches (of the shapes within the projection), revealing shards of light emanating from behind. From this the projection becomes an instrument with which the user can perform with sound, light and virtual space.
