#NOW | LUXLOOP

[22 August – 9 OCTOBER 2016]

LUXLOOP, #now, 2015 | Video produced by Ivaylo Getov, Lauren Hoekstra + Doug Turner | Performers: Christina Bobrowsky, Beck DeRobertis, Lauren Hoekstra, Sean Keta, Dasha Kittredge, Joshua Koopman, Taylor Laughlin, Moana Sherrill, Amelia Steely, Jeremy Ungar, Nick Zeig-Owens | Courtesy the artists.

In #now, a choir of people gather in one physical location using Social Sound as their virtual songbook. Created by Luxloop, Social Sound is a tool for live performance, aggregating the flow of real time social activity into a rush of sound. Tweets containing the key search term are channelled to performers, who narrate the thoughts out loud, providing a unique portrait of the social sphere at a given moment in time.

Luxloop is an experience and media-design company founded by filmmakers Mandy Mandelstein and Ivaylo Getov to explore future formats of narrative storytelling; bringing stories to life using cinematic language and interactive technology.
