A spatial kinetic installation staging the conflicting forces of uplift and gravitation
A spatial kinetic installation to explore the conflicting forces of reluctant uplift and gravitational pull, of acceleration and inertia. Independently moving agents are propelled along steel cables spanning a 19 meter high room. A stage play of steadiness and drastic changes ranging from violent thrust to free fall focuses on the force of gravity around us.
Each illuminated object is propelled up and down at varying speeds; the interaction of these movements creates whirring sounds and hypnotic light effect. The immersive installation thus transforms its surroundings into an otherworldly space which alters the spectators’ physical perception – conveying a fascinating and disorientating sense of altering gravities and forces.
