Dancing Ellipses

Dancing Ellipses from Sean Clute on Vimeo.


The installation Dancing Ellipses lights up the Hong Kong skyline with three dots traveling vertically on three facades of the International Commerce Centre skyscraper. Initially, the objects are in synch but gradually fall out of phase allowing for syncopated visual movements. After two minutes, the objects realign, looping the visual effect of falling and rising on the enormous vertical walls.
The work was curated by the Open Sky Gallery which is located at the ICC and features a 77,000 square meter LED screen. Dancing Ellipses premiered and received honorable mention at the International Symposium on Electronic Art 2016.
