Surface is a multimedia performance based on exploring the connection between light, sound, movement, and dance. Shaped around the laser harp instrument, the performance itself covers the coexistence of technology and man through a cybernetic approach. Generated by movement and dance, the images of sound and light break forth with the common expression of the laser grid surface. A glimpse into the depth through the waves is the basic premise of this performance.
The laser harp is a mediator between movement and sound, and movement and projections. Performers create different ambients, which are followed by different sound presets. Through the laser grid; the sound and the visual effects of the lasers are triggered not only by performers but also by smoke and airy cloth that performers add to the frame of the harp during the performance. Other than this role of the cloth, it is also a panel for the back projection, which gains its 3D shape by adding more clothes to the frame. Apart from implying that the surface could be perceived as a phenomenon that separates space below (behind) from the space above (in front), the name Surface relates to the geometrical inspiration in the square, the main measurement unit for the surface.
