MICRO is an interactive installation of suspended globes from New York-based new media artist Aaron Sherwood and performer, choreographer and visual artist, Kiori Kawai of Purring Tiger. Positioned in the Blue River Plaza in downtown Breckenridge, visitors will be invited to walk into the installation and touch the globes, which represent particles. Each particle will reply with a different sound and light creating an immersive experience that represents how our mind affects particles, cells and ultimately the body itself.
MICRO is a featured installation at WAVE: Light + Water + Sound, an exhibition of cutting-edge works of contemporary public art presented from June 1–4, 2017. The free four-night festival features interactive artworks, temporary installations and performances in and around the Blue River Plaza in downtown Breckenridge, transforming the river, bridges and waterfront area into outdoor canvases, stages and exhibition spaces.
Funding for WAVE is generously provided by the Town of Breckenridge

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Purring Tiger’s mission is to bring people together in the context of art, in a subtext of wonder. Their work uses technology to intertwine the human body with sounds and visuals, and foster interaction. Purring Tiger also conducts lectures and performance workshops exploring the artistic combination of the human body with technology, using interactive installations and body movement. Many of their works are created in collaboration with local/international dancers, musicians and media artists.
MICRO has previously been shown at Burning Man (NV), Federation Square (Melbourne, AUS), Cameron Arts Museum (NC), and Canal Convergence (AZ).
