Saachi & Saachi NDS Meet Your Creator 2012
  • A live theatrical performance with 16x moving head spotlights, 16x flying robots each equipped with LEDs and motorized mirrors.
    Exploring UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) as a means to deflect and divert light, and create floating light sculptures dancing to music. Pushing the anthropomorphism of abstract forms to it’s limits - with an aim to create an emotional connection between audience and quad-rotor flying vehicles.
