In 2013 the installation was improved in order to create a more immersive space with longer lasting soap films, which results in new fractal-like imagery: a new soap film appears.
Solace is a cinematic installation that explores the mental process and physical activity of seeing. At regular intervals a handcrafted apparatus creates a monumental transparent soap film as a spatial intervention. The analogue imagery created in Solace has a digital reference. It creates a temporary layer that can be seen as a metaphorical reflection on augmented reality. 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.
