Crystalis is a 3D illusion about transfiguration and rebirth – a story told with light. As a figure evolves within a cloud of fog, an image is reflected by and through multiple planes within the structure. The ghost-like apparition is neither solid nor transparent, real or unreal. The viewer’s challenge is to reassemble the multiple projected images of light and movement into a recognizable story.
Crystalis was conceived and fabricated for the Portland Winter Light Festival by Eichinger Sculpture Studio and Koble Creative Architecture to engage viewers while celebrating the power of collaboration. Additional participants and contributors include Jillian St. Germain – Body Vox, for choreography and performance; Walt Dimick - Dimick Motion Pictures, Director of Photography; Dan Ackerman - Stage 13, stage and lighting; Michael Koerner - Koerner Camera Systems, cameras; Tim McClelland - Pro Sound and Lighting, projectors; Dashiel Atherly – Editing; and Robbin Atherly - Producer, video production.
