The beautiful Fractured Heart was initially conceived as a unique visual backdrop to a live performance, but ingenuity and new technology enabled illuminart to turn it into a live synaesthetic visual music instrument.
Here is a video showing Fractured Heart as it was presented in June 2012 at VIVID in Sydney. It’s now on display at the National Film and Sound Archive, while illuminart work on the next versions of the instrument.
