installation & video created with deborah rhyner ⎜ 2016

submerged film ⎜ 2016

Submerged is an installation that uses light sound and projections. A triangular frame floats three meters high in space and iridescent foils hand from each side. The interaction between light and reflection is projected into the room. A fan moves the foils and, consequently, the colored reflections on the wall also start to move. This creates a calming atmosphere and the impression of sunlight shimmering on a water surface. With the aesthetics of water in mind, we edited and combined videos that take up the theme. In the middle of the triangular volume, there is a semi-transparent piece of tulle where the video is projected on. We adapted the brightness of the light impulses to the selected music and adjusted the movements in the video to the rhythm of the music. Ultimately, “Submerged” is a moving and emotive installation in which all the individual parts are combined. It is an interactive installation: you can walk around it and it opens up new perspectives from every angle. You are allowed to touch the fabric and thus, the viewer changes the game of reflections, too.
