For our partnership with the Nuits sonores festival in June, Lyon-based graphic design agency Superscript², along with designer and programmer Martial Geoffre-Rouland partnered to produce Modular Ship, a flexible and adaptable installation that allowed for the construction of many different shapes.

The developers installed this modular medium on the ceiling of Stage 1, taking inspiration from the metallic structure of the Marché Gare in Lyon. The installation is composed of a graphic pattern editor, as well as an application to control the structure in real time, granting the artists ability to “mix” all the installation parameters—such as color, pattern, delay, transition, sound reactivity, and frame rate—multiplying the posibilites for creativity and customization.
