Project: Bottom of the Burg

An audio responsive (interactive) installation which combines both pressure/intense 'mass' and reassuring soothing. The composition allows the observers open for consideration and debate: the work could reflect on one's personal state of mind in their private atmosphere, 'the weight on our shoulders' or more finding calmness and having a 'peace of mind'. This inspection can be experienced from the private (the bed) or from a distance (the open space).

Thesis: ☺ - Emoti(c)ons: balancing on the fine line between real life and the digital world.

The thesis examines the way we learn to communicate and how we deal with our emotions through different means of online and offline media. The digital world opens up interpersonal communication, but also creates detachment of expressing our feelings and emotions towards each other being in face to face situations.
