Interactive Artist Eric Corriel Turns the City Into a Snowflake

Publish date:

Interactive artist Eric Corriel's "Cityspheres," which was installed as part of the DUMBO Arts Festival this past weekend, takes a real-time, microscopic look at cityscapes and makes them into kaleidoscopic wonders.

Corriel explains to The Creators Project, "Let’s say for argument’s sake that you believe the veins of an ordinary leaf or the crystalline structure of a snowflake can be said to be beautiful. If that’s true, then maybe one way to reveal an object’s beauty is to zoom in and focus on its underlying structure. Could that same principle be applied to the urban environment to reveal its underlying beauty?”

Corriel's set-up for the project includes a MiniDV camera from 1999, a 2011 MacMini, and new custom software.
