Fragile Cosmos

Confined room, projection screen, motion and sound detection sensor, bespoke generative real-time graphics software.
2022

As in a quiet forest, any movement breaks the intimate silence of the space, generating echoes that solely time can bring to fading. Only when stillness permeates once more, can the gentle uncovering of a fragile cosmos re-emerge.

Using bespoke software the motion and noise levels are registered in the space. Any perturbation of stillness and quietness detected will rupture the gentle unfolding of this digital process. Each person is responsible for the other's experience as much as their own.
How to exist in this interdependent ecosystem?

The public, standing on the threshold between observing and being observed, is invited to contemplate on the act of witnessing as a delicate form of participation.
