Nine water tanks suspended from the ceiling are filled with fog, onto which images are projected from above, while sounds from nine speakers connected to each of the tanks reverberate across the exhibition space. Repeated synchronization and dispersion of the showering sounds and ever-changing images seen through the wavering fog create an intricate audio-visual setting in which the visitor can walk or lie down to direct his/her attention to the interface between the visible and the invisible, the audible and the inaudible, while abandoning himself to the fleeting world of light and sound.
Tanks and fog
Nine water tanks measuring 1.2 x 1.2 meters, and 30 centimeters high, are suspended from the ceiling of the exhibition space. Each is filled with approximately 100 liters of water, above which fog produced by ultrasonic mist generators with varying density continuously flows above the water surface. The fog functions as a projection screen for the images used in this work, resulting in concrete yet at once abstract, immaterial yet at once physical visual impressions.
Images and sounds
For this work, approximately 400 audio/video sequences extracted from the original "LIFE" were combined with around the same amount of newly produced material. Images are divided into 15, sounds into 30 categories, whereas both components are algorithmically combined to create an infinitely transforming audio-visual setting.
