Water Bowls: moon ~ drop ~ sound ~ oil

13 Nov 2009

Microwave International New Media Arts Festival 2009
Hong Kong

Four water bowls reflect different aspects of water related to the collective, global human condition. Some of the most common metaphorical associations of water -- such as the reflection of the moon, a drop of water, the sound of water, and oil and water -- are revisited through the use of some of the latest scientific observations. Moon and Sound are locally interactive and Drop and Oil are interactive both locally and remotely, emphasizing the global connectivity of water / human systems, beyond borders.

Conference: November 15th, 11:00-16:00 at the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Center Lecture Hall

Victoria Vesna + James Gimzewski collaborations NanoMandala and Zero@wavefunction on exhibit in Tenerife, Spain. Exhibition opens September 25 and runs through October 25 at El Tanque, Espacio Cultura.

NanoMandala is a videoprojection on a sand mandala created by Tibetan Buddhist monks from the Gaden Lhopa Khangsten Monastery in India. Inspired by Buddhist culture, NanoMandala examines our perceptions of the universe from the nano to the cosmic scale. Images are projected onto the sand mandala of a single grain of sand at the molecular level, evolve into images of the complete mandala. Ambient sounds for NanoMandala were created by mixing sounds of ocean waves and audio of the Tibetan monks chanting while building the sand mandala.
