Composition 1

Sara Ludy’s Composition 1 (2012), a 5:20 minute HD video walk-through of a virtual space, was created using a 3D program and is the first in a series of studies that explore the nature of suggested space in a virtual environment. The main structure, composed of repeated images of grass, is inhabited by various 3D shapes placed within a monochromatic gradient background. The latter simulate distance and isolate the scene while the composition extends horizontally, allowing the viewer to “see ahead”, into upcoming virtual spaces. Space is suggested through the most minimal virtual means, and each “room” indicated by sound. The accompanying soundtrack consists of a single audio loop where its duration matches that of each spatial section and changes pitch, hence revealing the scale of each section before it comes into view.

For Composition 1, she intended to create an open and uncertain relationship between her virtual environments and the analogy made to real spaces.

Sara Ludy lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
