Leonardo/Olats, in collaboration with IMéRA, organized in June 2012 a two day workshop on the theme "Water is in the Air" as part of the StudioLab European project.
"WAVES" is a a collaborative project between the artist Javiera Tejerina-Risso and the scientist Patrice Le Gal to install videos, images and multimedia performances based on the visualization of water surface waves.
They aim to study the behavior of different types of waves and their evolution: generation, breaking, focussing. They also want to find possible comparisons with other types of waves like sound or optical waves and try to understand how our brain processes and interprets waveforms.
This video recording of Javiera Tejerina-Risso and Patrice Le Gal presentation is part of the audiovisual proceedings of the workshop.
