Positioned in a dark echoing room, two projectors are aimed at two basins of water resting on two speakers. The aesthetics of the installation bring to mind the grid-like, abstracted early computer graphics of the 70’s with an additional layer of natural processing via the vibration and sloshing of the water. The room could be seen as the central node of some biologically-driven spacecraft.
Blasts of synthetic sounds come from the speakers, creating a variety of interference patterns in the reflected images as the relationship between the two projected entities progresses.
One screen flashes, then the next. Particles of light trickle down from the reflected images. The two entities engage in a cacophonous sonic language that moves from lust to war, synchronization to battle until they are destroyed.
Huge thanks to Nick Emmet for design consultation and construction and Matt Ching for shoot + installation assistance.
