Passing Waves 2017 installation video, camera obscura surround sound 5.0
Once you fall you can’t deny the existence of a bottom. Once the world appears from the shadows upside down, the reality is no longer the same.
Passing Waves is a space-based audiovisual installation. The work examines the near-death experience and hidden consciousness, creating a experience of mystical atmosphere with low light. The work is based on the camera obscura phenomenon and is build in the form of a video inside five wooden sculptures. The moving images of the work can only be observe by of peeking holes, and thus the focus is on viewing as an act. A peek inside the sculptures also creates a sense of being watched and the attention of direction of the gaze.
The sound world of the work is made up of five speakers, and interlace sound resonates within the sculptures as the sensory experience intensifies as you move closer to the sculpture.
