2. 9. – 7. 9.

Portraits of individuals are taken by an infrared camera and then displayed by a laser projector on a phosphorescent screen. The laser constructs the image pixel by pixel, layer by layer, and thereby produces glowing areas on the phosphorescent screen that slowly fade.

Ocean of Light: Surface


The Ocean of Light project explores the creative and immersive possibilities of light-based visualization in physical space. It uses hardware to create dynamic, interactive and three-dimensional sculptures from light. Surface, the first artwork to be exhibited using the Ocean of Light hardware, is a responsive virtual eco-system that occupies physical space. This space is dominated by a virtual surface, the boundary between two fluid virtual materials. These are affected by sound, nearby noise creates waves that ripple across the surface, but can also trigger luminous blasts. The result is an interconnected environment, overlapping physical and virtual spaces that coexist and are aware of each other.

Ocean of Light: Surface is a Squidsoup project, created by Anthony Rowe (UK), Gareth Bushell, Chris Bennewith (NZ), Liam Birtles (UK) and Ollie Bown (AU), supported by the Technology Strategy Board (UK)

Finnbogi Pétursson – Earth

2.9. – 7.9.

In a water-filled basin, Icelandic artist Pétursson creates interference at 7.8 hertz. The sound, which can be heard and felt, becomes visible in the form of waves on the surface of the water. This 7.8 hertz frequency corresponds to a physical phenomenon named the Schumann Resonance that describes the resonation of the Earth’s electromagnetic field. For Pétursson, this is the frequency of our home planet’s pulse.
