Solace

Installation experimentalist Nicky Assmann generates an awesome array of color with the simple application of soap water in her work entitled Solace. An intriguing visual treat that speaks volumes about the way we understand light. Official information as follows:

“SOLACE is a cinematic installation that investigates the mental process and physical activity of seeing. At regular intervals a handcrafted apparatus creates a soap film as a spatial intervention. Through precise lighting the inner movement of the soap film is revealed, showing a turbulent choreography of iridescent color and fluid motion. As gravity slowly gets a hold of the membrane the viewer can be fascinated with the phenomenon, until inevitably the fragile film bursts.”
