Why you love the Fringe.

Arkhé : ἀρχή

September 16th at 5:30pm

In simple terms, Arkhé utilizes its viewers as direct participants in creative coding. A camera will interpret audience positions within a given, unseen grid. Through the power of functional programming, each participant will become a specific piece of code that will be captured individually through digital display. From this -- and based on the participants position, shirt color, and relative location to other participants -- a unique combination of code will be generated and populated visually via projection.
