D6 is part of the artist’s Diffusor series. Here Shemza has recycled a traditional Cat-2 lighting fixture and turned it into an artwork by adding technology. The piece is sound-reactive. It uses a microphone to collect sound data and converts the data into a light animation. It responds to the sound that a viewer creates and also reacts to live or recorded music, changing over time creating a dynamic effect. The work is immediately engaging to a viewer as there is a direct relationship to the sound they are making and the lighting of the piece creating an instant and playful connection between the viewer and the artwork.
