 Project Overview 

The goal of this project is to deliver African myths and stories related to African Cosmology and Philosophy through live-interactive projection mapping. We created this tool to track four dancing performers on a stage, and then project multiple visual effects back onto their bodies. This is a project in collaboration with Pittsburgh-based Artist: Mikael Owunna and the Rainbow Serpent Collective.

 Mikael Owunna.


Mikael Owunna is a Nigerian American multimedia artist, filmmaker, and engineer. Exploring the intersections of technology, art, and African cosmologies, his work seeks to elucidate an emancipatory vision of possibility that revives traditional African knowledge systems and pushes people beyond all boundaries, restrictions, and frontiers.

 Performance: The Four World Ages 

The Four World Ages, which is the theme of the performance, comes from African Igbo Philosophy that divides the world into four different ages:

Uga Aka - Age of Unity and Oneness

Uga Chi - Age of Awareness and Separation

Uga Anwu - Age of Sun, Light & Civilization

Uga Azi - Age of Suffering, Backwardness
