Membrane

Membrane

Video projection, sound, computational & interactive media, video camera, light, laptop, muslin. 2013. INSTALLATION VIEW.

Membrane is an biosensing video installation exploring affective vibrations, intersubjectivity and the permeability of our barriers. With a nod to affect and string theory, sound and light is used to project the intimate rhythm of the heart into the public sphere. Membrane places the curious centre stage, turns the spotlight on affect and locates the bypasser as witness and collaborator.
