What will help us break away from information overload and daydream?

The Dive

A site-specific installation to make you pause and be mesmerised

Aug – Sept 2018 | Solo project
Silicon oil, acrylic sheets, polyurethane tubes, air compressor, iron
I remember when I was about two or three, I used to endlessly watch this video that showed various satisfying gimmicks to Mozart’s Turkish Rondo...

What will make me daydream like that? Pause thoughts — just breathing, living.

I prototyped with some viscous liquid and air, eventually creating a mesmerising motion of bubbles.


The Dive, exhibited at Ars Electronic Festival 2018, is an installation to induce meditative sensations. Using thin tanks filled with blue oil, air permeates from the bottom creating organic movements of bubbles. It is the most recent work in The Series for Daydreamers.
