Theatre of the Future: Monet Listens to Debussy

Claude Monet (1840-1926) and Claude Debussy (1862 -1918), the two french artists pursued impressionism in painting and music respectively. This live animation theatre project aims to show an imaginary encounter of the two pioneers in impressionism. The visual projected on the backside of the concert hall is interactivly animated upon a musician's live performance. This generative art tries to offer audience an unique opportunity of seeing what Monet might have seen in his perception if he had listened to Debussy's  Violin Sonata in G minor when he painted the parliament series in London.
