THE IDEA

 

“YOU ARE NOT A DROP OF WATER IN AN OCEAN,

YOU ARE THE ENTIRE OCEAN IN A DROP OF WATER!“

- RUMI -

 

 

we are magnificent creatures

we don't just exist, we are the existence itself!

 

we create our own realities that becomes our lives..

 

unfortunately our minds cannot comprehend our true existence!

 

however this interactive art installation intends to give you the flavor..

 

 

ABOUT THE CASING

 

20ft container

244 cm width, 600 cm length,  260 cm height

covered with a reflective material in order to prevent extra heat from the sun

 

before you start your journey, there is a data collecting spot;

- a camera taking actual photos of people’s faces who enters

- collector for heart rate, temperature etc..

it is crucial that people understand that its their own DATA that runs the show!

**encouraging single entry is necessary** 

INSIDE OF THE CASING

inside is dark..

floor is covered with thick floor mat that makes you feel like you walk on the moon..

and also it absorbs all the magical dust of the playa..

walls and ceiling are covered with a reflective magical material,

like mirror but semi-transparent!!!

 

there is an invisible - to the observers :) - projector that projects to this magical materials..

when the reflected image is black the magical material acts like a mirror 

these projected images are manufactured from the data that’s been taken from the observers

 

 

THE EXPERIENCE

 

- BEFORE EVERYTHING PHASE -

 

when you enter, you hear an ambient celestial sound; with many chimes.. 

while walking through, you see yourself’s reflection on the wall in the magic material

and your reflections’ reflection on the other wall and on the ceiling..

while you walk, your image on the walls (mirror image) starts to multiply like the image below  

** samsara non verbal film, 2011

and fade out while you walk away..

 

 

- BIG BANG PHASE -

 

after one minute there will be a sudden EXPLOSION  will show on video,

with sound, feeling..

like an explosion of a dying star

everything will painted with white light

loud sound of an explosion

instant air blow.. 

and as light fade out there is only darkness and silent for a second..

 

and you on the mirror..

 

- LIFE PHASE -

 

after explosion // after all the white thunder storm // “big bang”

as the lights fade, the image turns black and your image start to appear on the magical material

you see your reflection on the walls

softly a happy melody starts to fill the space

then you start to bloom!

 

 

petals come out of your image that is reflected to the magical material..

unicorns appear, feathers emerge.. 

life begins with you, from you.. 

for every single person, the images will be unique

these images will be manufactured from the datas that has taken from the observer

 

when you get a closer look to the petals or whatever you turn into

you see your face! in every pixel :)

those petals // trees // butterflies // unicorns whatever you turn into is made of you!

 

life begins with you, from you..
