One of a series of pieces by Lucid Creates exploring the relationship between individual and communal responsibility upon social and climate change.
Reflections of the Future will debut at Winterfest, Wembley Park on Thursday 26 November 2020. The light trail will run daily, from 12pm to 10pm, until Sunday 17 January 2021.
Reflections of the Future is a large-scale immersive audio visual installation that uses visual illusion to take us to a place where good things have happened and the future we want exists now. A corridor of light that gives audiences a unique environment to have optimistic thoughts about the future as they are surrounded by their own reflections, lights and sound. A sequence of mirrored LED pillars are positioned so that they confuse perception of distance and space. Undulating in and along the walkway, they will create distortions of depth and spots of intensity of light and sound. Due to the angles of the mirrors, guests will see multiple, distorted versions of themselves and others creating a strong sense of togetherness.
Created in our workshop from hundreds of metres of steel bar, LED and mirror, Reflections of the Future is a huge 100m long walkway of moving light, soundscapes and mirrors that allows audiences to promenade through an immersive space and be transported to a positive view of the future.
Optical and visual illusions reveal how we truly perceive reality. Illusions can reveal everything from how we process time and space to our experience of consciousness. They show us that our minds tend to make assumptions about the world - what we think we see is often not the truth. .
The light from things we see has to reach our eye before a signal travels to the brain to be processed. This takes time, which means that the world you perceive is slightly in the past. Our brain has to make predictions about our surroundings in order to “perceive the present”. We have to see the future.
In Reflections of the Future we play with visual illusion to take audiences to a beautiful and wonderful future. It is an immersive audiovisual space that uses visual illusions, reflections, light and sound to create positive thought and action.
The world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. By thinking positively about where we want to be tomorrow, we can prompt the action we need today. If we focus on a better world we can create it.
When we think negatively and worry about everything all the time we can lose our ability to focus on creating the future we want. By surrounding audiences in a place that allows them to experience being within a future where good things are happening in the world, we can encourage the positive thoughts and actions that will make a positive future become a reality.
Reflections can be adapted in size and layout to suit the space in which it is it inhabit - from a 20 x 20m square to a 10m x 40m maze.
Lenticular can be exhibited as a standalone piece without Reflections of the Future.
