PENG Ke-Material Topology

Material Topology is an art installation on a spherical dome that explores the materiality at different scales. It magnifies real-time changes in the microcosmic world within an immersive space, prompting the audience to contemplate the similarities and chaotic patterns among entities of various dimensions.

Inspired by topology's geometry, it reveals how seemingly different objects may possess identical structures, and a mutual mapping exists between micro and macro scales. The installation uses high-definition macro cameras to capture and magnify the dynamic variations of fluorescent powder particles influenced by sound vibrations. These visuals are projected onto the dome's surface in real-time. Within the encompassing dome environment, even the tiniest material changes are highlighted, evoking awe and imagination. Simultaneously, the sound experience is generated using image-recognition algorithms that modulate the sound based on the particle dynamics, creating an echoing and immersive soundscape.

Audience interaction is facilitated by touch, enabling them to influence the overall system's micro and macro elements, experiencing the intricate interplay between humans and matter at these scales.


PENG Ke is a London-based multimedia artist, exploring the intersection of visual and sound through various mediums such as audiovisual installations, live performances, and digital arts. Her works often blend physical materials with digital technology to create an immersive sensory experience, challenging our normal perception. Her pieces have been showcased in various locations, including IRCAM in the Centre Pompidou, London IKLECTIK Art Lab, Crypt Gallery, Singapore Media Art Nexus, and Beijing Strawberry Music Festival.
