The cosmos in the basin | progress4
This project is an interactive fountain. It has two separate water streams controlled by the movements of left and right hands, respectively. Light, projecting on the water, and musics will evolve according to different hand movements as well. Audiences in this piece of work are not only participants but also observers. They contribute to the changes of the cosmos in the basin, but they also reflect on the changes they make. The theme of the project lies in the traditional philosophy of Taoism: Yin and Yang. While interacting with the fountain, people may reflect on our relationships with nature: How should our relationship with nature be? Are we part of nature or isolated from it?
Interaction with water:
1. I fill my basin, and decide to put rock in the basin so I can project image/video on top of it.
