LOOKING OUT LOOKING IN INTERACTIVE ART INSTALLATION
by Shlomi Ron
This ambient video installation features a life-size virtual window through which a natural landscape of a serene beach serves as the stage for a poetic narrative. The symmetric dynamic of the minimalistic waves motion, the lounging lone seagull, and the encroaching young couple - creates a meditative visual experience that transforms the physical space from right here to imaginative there while engaging audiences in immersive dialogs with their surroundings. This natural vista demands viewers to look out the window to process the visual narrative and then look in, to process its objective and subjective meanings. The result is a surprising redefinition of the space ambiance into a powerful story maker and the audience into revved-up storytellers.
