From all earthly elements, water is the one that unites us all best. It is at the basis of life in all its forms, and embodies various concepts crucial to our very existence: vitality, continuity, sustainability, purification, and growth.
As a new media art studio that often explores nature-related themes, it is no surprise that our attraction to water reverberates in many of our works.
AS WATER FALLS is a virtual interactive waterfall that aims to explore different aspects of water and its metaphorical concepts, shedding a light on our relationship with this precious element. A large-scale installation taking the form of a cascade, the piece reacts to mobile phone flashlights. Added mirrors, real water, and vibrating motors are also included to make for an even more immersive experience.
Sounding and looking like a big natural waterfall, people will swiftly realize as they get closer that the water flowing is actually a plethora of objects and concepts that are sure to pique their curiosity. With inherent instructions embedded within the piece itself, participants will easily understand how to engage and will embark on the experience by pointing their mobile flashlight towards the different visuals displayed.
The waterfall theme was purposely chosen to highlight the power of this natural phenomenon, helping us make a statement on this element’s immense importance. The title also adds movement to the piece from the get-go, hinting to the many interactive possibilities that can occur “as water falls”.
Designed for crowds of all ages, this engaging multi-layered installation will bring people to the great outdoors and help us once again reconnect with the simple pleasures of mother nature.
