Nuru Shimoni

Nuru is an interactive installation designed for the 2019 Rhizom festival in Zurich. It is meant to represent a portal like growth connecting its participants to a seemingly extensive Mycelial network of roots. Sonar sensors and Microphones were used to detect presence and communication. A smoke machine, bass shaker, sound system and 1920 mapped leds to immerse people in a responsive environment.

Technical Details

I designed and implemented this installation together with Andreas Steiner and the help of Herman Coetzee. Together with Andreas we developed the concept design over several iterations and I was personally in charge of the electrical setup, simulation environment, and practical implementation.
