Archifon IV

Sonica 2017

One part video game, one part holographic display, one part gigantic musical instrument: Floex and Initi bring the interior of the University of Glasgow’s Memorial Chapel to life as you’ve never seen it before. Elements of the architecture are primed to respond to the beams from laser pointers handled by the audience: statues might suddenly sing when light strikes them, or ornamental details might spring to life and writhe across the walls. The excitement is in finding and activating each of the hidden objects, in an audiovisual Easter egg hunt – while also discovering the overlooked architectural details of one of the city’s great buildings.
