Sinewaves in the Triangle is an immersive multimedia installation that uses technology to express the artistic mind and the creative process to illicit an emotional and physical reaction in the viewer. Using material from his United Arts Council Grant, composer and conceptualist Christopher Scully-Thurston joins scenographer Austin F. Powers and cinema choreographer Jennifer Scully-Thurston to use techniques drawn from technology to glimpse inside the mind and creative spirit. The intention is to attempt and execute new artistic methods.
