Trydra ("try" - "drah") is a projection-mapped installation made of four wall-mounted tetrahedrons — a playful reinterpretation of the Eye of Providence in the pyramid on our dollar bill. Trydra appears to be a kind of science fiction monster, complete with anthropomorphic eyes that look around the room and blink at passersby. Repeating patterns reminiscent of tentacles flourish from its sides while the rest of its surfaces pulsate and shimmer.
Trydra grew out of a desire to push the boundaries of previous works, particularly Tetracluster. It is a real-time, generated installation, controllable through a gestural interface using Myo Armbands. Special effects also included coordinated color schemes and false lighting.
