  • Abstract

    The Aurora (known as Borealis in the North, and Australis in the South) is one of the most magnificent, and mysterious natural phenomena. Those who have witnessed it claim it is a sublime experience. We are interested in how such an awe inspiring spectacle can be conveyed through an artwork – how is it communicated and what is the impact on an exhibition audience? Our interdisciplinary international team attempts to investigate these questions. This paper is focused on our exploration to create a poetic environment comprising a tactile and technological sculpture, a soundscape, and real-time kinetic text – collectively forming an installation called Aureole.
