HORIZONS, presented a “visual journey” through a live video mixing performance in collaboration with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, July 30, 2014. The large-scale architectural projection upon the Wisconsin State Capitol Building concluded the WCO’s final summer concert for a 35,000+ audience. Roney mixed live animations with the chamber orchestra and guests.
Roney looks to embrace great public gathering spaces where local place meets global interest – virtual and physical worlds combine. HORIZONS, presents a spectacular array of animated vignettes activating a performative, time-based spatial experience to surpass architecture’s static structure; creating a more fluid communicative infrastructure for placemaking, destination development.
A true collaborative vision with the City of Madison's Economic and Community Development Department, the team integrated the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra and Wisconsin State facilities and officials over a two-year period of planning. CODAworx also contributed to the community documentation during the performance evening. Roney's projectionist team was led by LPE, Atlanta with Bruce Harlan, Production Manager; Tony Wallace, Projectionist/GoPro Camera; and Matt Bailey, Grip/Handheld Camera.
Horizons have always been an inspiring point of visual perspective – where the sky meets the Earth, where the land meets the sea – a point of infinite possibilities and a reminder of our place in the world; where “the beyond” is a place of wonder and excitement. This frontier can be expanded as our physical and virtual worlds overlap and further our interactions with one another in creating a sense of place. HORIZONS, responds to these potentialities inspiring fresh perspectives of discovery while redefining the places we meet.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
