I WENT DOWN THE STREAM

"I create 3 videos to show a world hidden inside the reflection of water.

I use my tentacle that is made out of water to find a link between the world that surrounds me right now and the memories of adventure that only I know. No matter if it is humidity or moisture, I sense water to discover the unknown;

Just like water has no fixed form, I hold different identities when facing water.
I seek the trace of water anywhere I come across, as an archaeologist, an explorer, a stranger, a human being, or even an object. I talk with and attempt to build relationships with water, taking care of it and sometimes accidentally causing its rebirth.

The world is covered with” truths” that I can’t understand. I have to use my tentacle to sense the real truth. As the witness and a liaison of the hidden world, I attach consumer objects, uncontrollable nature, and myself together with ropes and words; to recreate the hidden world in this twisted reality. "

This is a Unity-based video piece, inspired by Reich’s Pendulum Music, but with a microtonal tuning based on a 1-3-5-7 combination-product set. The fundamental of this tuning is an upper 2/1 partial of the Schumann resonance 7.83 Hz. This Schumann resonance is basically the resonant frequency of the Earth’s electromagnetic field.

This project is a reflection of the gestures we perform on a routine basis in order to interact (as the trigger and the data input) with networked devices such as smartphones and laptops. These gestures are abstracted/flattened in the design process and transformed into online behaviors. This habit-formation process only takes us a few attempts […]
