Presence Interactive Installation | 2014
This interactive installation combines with my two other paintings. http://irenedigitalarts.weebly.com/painting--mixed-media.htmlMy initial idea was from Asian Festival of Lantern on the water, a funeral ceremony, which indicates life starts in a different form instead of the end . I believe that death is not the opposite of life; it is a part of life, and often transforms the individual into a presence, perhaps another kind of natural form, or in the memories of those who remember, or a spirit that remains. Audience will interact with the installation by controlling the light intensity of lantern floating on the water with their distance to the infrared sensor. Besides, through this interaction, they can understand life without physical body and presents it in a different way.
