AquaSonic presents an immersive audiovisual installation, inviting viewers into a contemplative exploration of the visual and sonic intricacies of water. Water, as a source of complex sensory input, holds a profound relationship with human evolution. This relationship has honed our perception to simplify its visual and auditory complexity.
Through language, we often condense these intricate sounds and images into familiar concepts like 'wave' or 'stream'. Within the realm of AquaSonic, spectators are guided into a state of introspection. A central pillar, infused with water sourced from the Spree River, becomes a focal point.
The water, catalyzed by an immersion coil, undergoes a transformation that is both visually and sonically heightened. The kinetic dialogue of water and energy reverberates throughout the space through projection and hydrophone recording. A dynamic interplay of light and sound takes form, drawing the audience into an immersive sensory experience.
By manipulating the position and angle of the lamps directed at the central pillar, viewers are invited to participate playfully in the projection, creating a unique and ever-evolving dialogue between light and water.
