Munich, Germany/Taos NM
Synopsis: An audio-visual outdoor installation using 2 channels moving images / 4 channels audio. Moving from the surface, layer by layer, to the depth of the inherent world. Encounter. Every encounter implies a process of becoming and each becoming can not come about without meeting.
On two opposite positioned translucent surfaces on each circular, constantly changing structures are projected. The images are based on physical simulation of lacerating surfaces. If the tension gets too high, the surface is torn and new layers are revealed. The 4 channel sound installation literally give each screen its own voice. The light of the projection travels thru the translucent screens to merge on the floor. Here the encounter and the becoming is continuously happening.
