MARY & JESUS - Ripple#14 (Alternate Version)
3 on sale of 42
Ripples of the Universe is an audiovisual project by Pochang Wu and Lien-cheng Wang. The work features 14 figures across multiple fields who greatly influenced the world, while each echoes a piece of corresponding lyrics of Pochang’s song “As Expected.” Lien-cheng created the program to make this generative artwork. As the music starts, the program is triggered by the audio signal, causing a series of lines and symbols to emerge from the screen, unfolding 14 engrossing animated portraits as the melody plays.
