The goal for this space is to create a fluid experimental context for the audience to read and explore ideas behind the installation. Accompanying the enigmatic sound in the background, the dripping ripples on the obscure grey canvas introduces the audience to the deconstructed concept of gender.
As the audience moves their cursor, they will discover that the dripping effect is interactive and is sensitive to speed and motion. Texts appear as the audience scroll vertically and horizontally. The text color is intentionally hard to read for the audience to moves the cursor to play with the fluid ripples and discover the text. This technique forces the user to physically engage and internalise the abstract concept.
This space allows the audience to “roam” freely, to scroll both horizontally and vertically to explore new ideas. The experience prompts the audience to leave boundaries and contraints of the current social and physical world, and fully engage in beyond the imaginary – to discover a new paradigm in seeing and being.
The fast-paced moving texture in the background creates a game-like environment for the audience. Having no indication of where the each sound is coming from, the activity encourages the user to dive into the pool of experimentation. The shape-shifting space aims to remove the audiences’ sense of control and expections. The user is to fully immerse themselves into the space to “lose” themselves in order to find themselves again, uninhibited.
The information page allows the user to find out more about the installation: the ideas and meaning behind the exhibition. The page integrates the video from the physical installation and credits to those involved in the making of it.
