NIME is an international conference promoting new interfaces for musical expression. In 2018, the conference will be held in Blacksburg, VA, co-hosted by Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia. With the conference being co-hosted by neighboring universities, the 2018 theme is "Mirror Resonances."
A resonance is when an external vibrations drives another system to oscillate with greater amplitude at specific frequencies. Mirroring these resonances, frequencies move in polar directions, reflected from one another.
Playing off the idea of "Mirror Resonances" or mirrored vibrations, we came up with a system of reflection. This can be seen in the identity with the mirrored letterforms in the foreground and background, the appearing/disappearing of gradient lines, and the white/black appearance of the poster and website.
