An interactive sound installation using the detectability of electricity, body, water, and salt to cascade existence. It explores the constant process of confirmation and reinforcement of spiritual sublimation, machinery and flesh, material and spirit.
The space comes to life when the viewers touch the water in the device that triggers sounds to compose a fluid dimension; A dimension that transcends time and space.
The usage of medical implants and medicines to repair the flesh is to view the body as a machine. The boundary between robots and humans is fascinating. Are there souls? Is the world we perceived the whole? Do lifeless objects possess powers and thoughts? Can reality be created through rituals, contacts, and imaginations? The work intends to interpret and explore the oldest known belief system: Animism in the contemporary artistic approach.
