Bring to Existence
Without people, culture is just a collection of symbols. It needs someone to create it, someone to experience it, to bring it into meaningful existence.
Bring into Existence is an interactive installation that does not exist in any form until the moment someone interacts with it. The more the audience moves, the more intense the visuals and sound will behave. It invites the audience into the space to conjure the artwork to life. Each individual's identity and background create unique interactive interpretations through the one element that connects us all: movement.
Waking a quiet dark space from slumber, hints of this cultural connection begin to flow through the walls and spill from the speakers. Growing more magnificent with every movement. The audience becomes a conductor of sound, lights and visuals. Driving the artwork to its final crescendo to solidify the connection between creators and audience.
This project began at the tail end of 2022 with a conversation between Taiwanese new media artist Daphne Chu and Scottish multimedia creative Steven Morrison. Ideas of human connection, creativity and technology crafted the elements of this work. The artists wanted to create a work that only exists when interacted with. They shared their cultural backgrounds and discovered that humanity finds common connections that cross barriers, languages and societal norms. Movement, light and sound bond us all in some way, and become a part of our culture to open up more human experiences and connections.
