George Stadnik intends that participants interpret visual music imagery synaesthetically - what the eye saw in the composition, triggered the mind to create the complementary or contrasting sound, flavor, texture or feeling. His Digital Lumia is created by using optical simulation algorithms and software to construct virtual optical machines. The elements within each machine are adjusted over time so that a visual sequence of changes in color, refraction, reflection and shadow is composed. The resulting sequence is tested with key frames, then rendered in one of several resolution and file formats available for output.
