RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The Musical Landscapes and the Goddesses of Music is an exhibition presenting advances in interactive art through an exploration of the science, art and spirituality of Music, and its reflections in the Goddess images across Asian cultures. Through a collection of interactive exhibits employing new musical synthesis based on traditional grammar, interactive multimedia installations and recordings of performances by masters, the project allows viewers to enter the world of sound, musical landscapes, and its cultural and spiritual aesthetics.  The project presents both traditional and new instruments based on Indian Sitar, Burmese Saung Harp, Thai Xylophone, Korean Kayagum, Chinese Guzheng and Pipa, Vietnamese Dan Tranh, Javanese & Balinese Gamelan, chanting, and others. New instruments with embedded computation demonstrate interactions through gesture, touch, pull, movement, gaze and kinesthetic action. In addition, through responsive computing, people by their position, gesture, and movements control musical events in the exhibition environment.  Taken in total, the ideas presented present a vision for the design of society centered on Innovation, Well Being and Compassion.

CHALLENGE:

NAME:
Ranjit Makkuni and Sacred World Research Laboratory

PROFILE:
Ranjit Makkuni is an international multimedia artist and designer, the director of the design think tank, the Sacred World Research Laboratory. His multidimensional, multimedia museum works are intersections between traditional and modern art, design and technology, such that the results help both traditional and modern cultures. They are intended to show that the wisdom of traditional communities can positively negate the homogenizing influences of modern technology; and that the intelligence, creativity and sense of freedom afforded by modern design and technology can reciprocally help traditional artists. His major works are several museum projects: Eternal Gandhi Multimedia Museum, Planet Health Museum, The Goddess and Temples of Music, and The Crossing: Living, Dying and Transformation in Banaras. www.sacredworld.info www.ranjitmakkuni.com
