act II:
the waves



Second output of the project was presented as static installation in the conventional gallery space, accompanied by three performances that lasted for 1 hour during the opening event: a static performer illuminating the space/image with smartphone, 9 performers repeatedly standing up/lying on the floor in extremely slow motion under the heater, 2 performers constrained in hugging gesture. Each of the performances had no apparent movement to them at the moment of observation. The performance had an indirect relationship to the sounds bound to 2 steel plates, one being the frequency of magnetic resonance, while the other represented seismic activity in the ocean. The two frequencies, despite being asynchronous, met at some point in combination with the vibrating sound of the metal itself. After the opening event, all other elements of the installation remained. It consciously worked with the sensations that are not replicable through still and/or moving images, such as heat, smell, restrictions in movement, focusing the full experience of the viewer to ‘here and now’.
