Interval, interactive lumino-kinetic installation explores the relations between movement, natural phenomena, and physical laws of motion of water. It was created by experimenting with characteristic geometrical properties of waves and light reflections in the space. By walking across the sensitive floor, water waves are triggered in two pools, producing straight and circular shapes. Light reflects the motion on the walls in geometrical patterns depending on the shapes of pools and complexity of the interaction with the installation. This project clarifies often unnoticed natural structures and laws and creates choreography between body, object, space and physics, highlighting their interdependence.

Passing Lights

Exhibition Passing Lights presents the intertwining of space and perception, which are based on the integration of different luminance values; from function and atmosphere to the orientation or inspiration in order to observe all the aspects of being in the specific moment and space. The spillover of the existing and non-existing, visible and invisible structures, encourages awareness of different geometries, surfaces and volumes that surround us trying to catch the elusive moment of motion and light. In the centre are relations of the bodies, movement and architecture, and the need for a constant perceptual review that initiates a series of visual structures.
In addition, projected text integrated in the architecture of the exhibition space, discusses and analyses characteristic movement and spatial phenomenons for this particular location.

Upper Town Tales

Memories and experiences of a certain space is what makes that space specific and interesting; they enhance the presence of a past time and broaden the existing context. In this case, personal stories make Upper Town spaces more accessible than distant, mediated historical facts. They also encourage speaking out and pointing out current issues and needs.
While talking to the residents of the Upper Town, we discovered and collected stories and experiences, a starting point for light interventions. Various relations between text, light and urban space, revealed information, problems and potentials of certain locations from personal points of view and opened up a dialogue with other passers-by and citizens.

Body Events

These spatial settings consist of movement notation and geometric abstractions. Awareness about the objects we use and interact with in the specific surrounding, emphasize the designed materiality of space, and the social structures and development it preceded it. Vice versa, our body conforms to this surroundings. Analysis of materials, geometries, interactive and mobile elements and accordingly repetitive movement in an interrelation, points out the limits and potentials of our body.

Choreographic Structures

‘Choreographic Structures’ are a part of the research of everyday movement in public space and function as a platform for exploring relations between movement, body and space. They are created by overlapping choreographic methods with the design methods. With experiments and improvised structures set in public space, the habits and organized movement was explored, and in the same time creative potential of space as an initiator of movement. Every experiment consisted of certain movement aspects (focus, rhythm, proprioception, interaction) which were translated into shape, material, structure and mobile space. By implementing choreographic thinking in the design process there is a possibility to avoid uniformed and categorized space and develop diversity of spaces while choreography and experience of movement become more present and available to its everyday users.
