Dolby Gallery “Metamorphosis”

 

Leviathan’s Metamorphosis is an audiovisual odyssey that extracts brilliant color data from
masterpieces of the past century to create an entirely new experience of art.
Employing newly developed coding techniques, Leviathan dissects a curated selection of
paintings into abstract digital forms. The generative visuals, which are set rhythmically to a
composed ambient soundscape, evolve through time and space — transforming the unique
LED canvas at Dolby Gallery into an immersive, meditative experience.

 

This synergy between sight and sound is custom-designed for Dolby Gallery. Rich color
volume data, inspired by Dolby Vision technology, is brought to life along with a sonic
experience mixed in Dolby Atmos. Moving audio dynamically travels across 52 full-range
speakers and 34 subwoofers to immerse visitors in a fusion of art and science.

 

Leviathan is a specialized experiential design studio, based in Chicago, Illinois. Working at the
nexus of design, digital media, and interaction, Leviathan transforms ambitious ideas into
future-forward experiences.

 

This work is part of a series of Dolby exhibitions that explore the leading edge of audio and
imaging technologies in partnership with contemporary artists. Learn more at dolby.com/art
