Komorebi is a swarm of artificial creatures that make music in response to the sun, the clouds and the shadows of trees moving in the wind. Komorebi is a Japanese word meaning “sunlight shining through trees”. The electronic creatures together form an immersive sensory experience. The work suggests to us that “life” is not an exceptional property of organic life forms, but also a property of complex systems beyond biological lives as we understand it.
Komorebi is developed with the assistance of Daan Johan (PCB design), Riccardo Marogna (DSP programming), Caspar Krijgsman (OTA programming), Mihalis Shammas and Niccolò Merendino (body design), Rafaele Andrade (3D printing prototypes), Luuk Meints and Ionela Pop (horn casting), Willem Werkplaats (CNC milling), Francesco Di Maggio, Tingyi Jiang, Maria Oosterveen and Siavash Jafari (assembly).
Komorebi is commissioned by Into the Great Wide Open and produced in partnership with Crossing Parallels and Highlight Festival (TU Delft) and with the financial support of the Creative Industries Fund NL and Stichting Stokroos.
