flowers I
interactive video installation 2001 - 03

flowers 1 shows a bunch of flowers in a dark vase in front of a blue background. A draught gently moves the flowers, like in a summer vision, creating a light and a clourful still life. As soon as the visitors come closer to the video projection, they trigger (via sensors) the video sequence of the vase exploding. The explosion flowers lof the vase and the bunch of flowers, presented in slow motion, depicts the reversal of beauty into the aesthetics of destruction. A dissolution into patches of colour and it shows the changes and mixture of nature and artificiality.
