CDI design researcher Bruno Louchouarn is collaborating with systems architect Richard Phillips to technically explore interactions of data downloaded from the Mars Rover as part of an immersive music and media work, Sol Path, commissioned for the AxS/ak-sis/FESTIVAL 2014, in Pasadena, CA.

Featuring a renowned violist and an award-winnning projection designer, Sol Path explores the intricate interactions between an Earth-bound team of explorers and a robotic space lab as it searches for signs of life millions of miles away. According to the project’s website, Sol Path is inspired by the exploratory path that the Mars Rover takes over the course of a sol
