It has been a while since the presentation of the installation by Sandrijn van der Horst and me at The Incident Room #1 in R10, Zwolle. After brainstorming and testing, we’ve created an installation work where soundwaves are bending and guiding reflections of a water surface. More information about the project can be found here.
I now have some new documentation available; photo’s and video by Sandrijn. Hence this new post.
More photo’s overhere.
And here’s a video registration of our installation. It’s an edit, the complete registration is about 36 minutes. Due to compression for online use this isn’t the best possible view I’m affraid… but it still gives a reasonable impression. In case you’re wondering, you’re looking at a projection on a wall. Tip: hook up some descent speakers or headphones, before playing. Some of the frequencies are very low.
For the bonus experiment below we removed the mirror from our installation setting. This considerably reduces the light output and therefore it needs a fully darkened room (which wasn’t available in R10 by daytime) to be effective. But the interference patterns are totally different (and beautiful!), so I wanted to show you this early development in possible future projects anyway. Again, not the best video quality and this time there’s no sound.
