‘Eriya’ for Saatchi Gallery ‘Beyond the Road’ Exhibition, by Tupac Martir and Satore Studio (2019)
The ‘Beyond the Road’ exhibition was a deconstruction of the exclusive soundtrack by music pioneer James Lavelle (UNKLE), to create an exciting multidisciplinary walk-in album, merging the worlds of visual arts, music and film.
Our piece Eriya, which translates as ‘to feel’ in the indigenous Mexican language of Huichol, centres around holographic dancers which move around the viewer. In order to create the illusion of the digital dancer appearing in the space of the immersive exhibition, key technologies were required such as Kinect tracking, Notch software and Hypervsn holographic solutions. We wanted to create an ephemeral feel, between the dancer and the audience, appearing and dissapearing from view, while at the same time transforming the dancer’s body.
