THE NEON SCREAM @HOPSCOTCH
February-March 2019 @Blue Genie Art Bazaar, Austin, TX
The Neon Scream was an interactive installation that I created in conjunction with John-Michael Reed aka Dr. Bleep which was part of the Hopscotch interactive experience. The idea of the Angry Cloud as a cathartic vehicle was explored in a physical way, as viewers would have the opportunity to scream all out into a microphone causing the cloud to animate up, with greater reactions from more intense screams. You realize after witnessing and experiencing the interaction that an all out scream is a rare and very transformative action that affects onlookers and screamers. Visitors were then directed to exit through a repurposed bathroom stall, where they were encouraged to identify the source of the feeling that inspired the scream by writing it on the wall.
