Circus Family at NYCxDESIGN 2017, May 19 2017
This interactive installation consists of modular shapes containing programmable LED lights. The visualisation above consists of 2 shapes. Each shape is built with separate blocks. The shapes are made of wood, fabric and mirrors. Inside the interior of the shapes are controllable LED strips and sensors that measure movement.
Circus Family consists of a family of audiovisual designers with a passion for bringing challenging projects to life, using design, moving image, music and interactive technology.
They specialise in the fields of fashion, music, sports and luxury. As well as commissioned work, for brands such as Nike and Tommy Hilfiger, and events including SXSW and New York Design Week, they love to create their own projects, just for the fun of it.
Founded in Amsterdam in 2004, the family started off making snowboarding films, and today, founder Wout Westen still brings his directorial talents to projects as diverse as documentary series “Pull Up” as well as highly visual installations for a wide range of events.
Circus Family believes in merging design and technology to explore new territories, create powerful audiovisual experiences and tell stories worth telling.
