What are the main trends in the field of art, sound and IT at the moment?First, the world is becoming more audiovisual. And now we notice more often that if a picture is hanging, then at least it is finished with light, it means that there is a task for lighting artists who correctly design the space and this is work not only with the material, but also with the context.
It is clear to everyone that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but nevertheless, a greater number of creative units are involved in any installation: designers, sound designers, lighting artists, decorators. If there is an opportunity to influence a person not only through an image, but also through sound, why not take advantage of this. And the installations themselves have become more complex, artists are increasingly using new technologies, not only a living texture, but also various mechanisms, because the artist is always exploring the space, the world around him, and everything that he can use.
Sound design can help an artist to tell their story. If we talk about trends, installations become interactive. We are moving from static jobs to those that you can get in touch with. We live in the era of interactive art, when you can become a part of it. As an example, immersive theatre.
The artist has a huge number of different technological solutions in his arsenal: from small microcontrollers and microcomputers, to which light, temperature, and motion sensors can be connected, which can be easily controlled literally with a touch or a wave of the hand.
