fluidum 1 created in 1999
was the first in a series of interactive works reacting on infrared
video images. The
observer faces his contour, sketched by some thousand lightpoints
which are attracted and flow along the mirrored silhouette.
The altered self-image in the digital mirror allows a change in the
relation towards the own body and motion and the
two-dimensional abstraction of the body to a flowing silhouette accompanied
by a meditative soundscape creates an atmosphere in which people experience
themselves as connected and transfer this feeling to their behaviour
in the real world.
