The installation explores the sculptural and aesthetic potentials of textile in a ‘frozen’ form combined with a musical composition principle driven by repetitive, random patterns. This interactive audiovisual installation engages its audience directly. Built-in sensors detect movement and activate an audio element, producing a ‘song’ that is triggered and shaped by human curiosity, as people approach, move away from and walk around the sculptures.
With inspiration from morning yoga practice, the physical form suggests the Sun Salutation, while the audio is reminiscent of chanting. The sound resonates within and between the two textile objects, forming a duet that encourages pause, reflection and meditation in a multisensory experience that seeks to transform seeing and hearing into breathing, as different senses blend, merge and interact.
The audio element is created in a collaboration with composer and producer Jesper Ranum.
