MULTIMEDIA INSTALLATION for the NEW YORK FESTIVAL OF LIGHT 2014
The sun and the heart are very deeply connected in all kind of cultures,
religions and spiritual teachings.
The heart is the center of love and the sense of emotional life.
Coronal mass ejections can influence the earth's magnetic field and could extinguish the electrical system on earth.
So daily we are confronted with the power of the solar system and it‘s activities on our planet.
One of the video projection is related to the human HEARTBEAT.
Valerie Schaller made an ultra sonic recording of her own heart.
There is more then ever a need of focusing on heart qualities in our society.
Political, global and ethical themes cannot anymore be faced without
considering heart qualities and it is very much the spirit of the age to show this aspect as a part of our human nature. Also cardiovascular diseases are the main reason of mortality in our western world. The Heart Filling Station will encourage people to‘‘listen to their heart‘‘ and give attention to the emotional part of their life.
So it‘s a pleasure to give big-sized positive-heart-solar power to visitors and
illuminate the City in the middle of the world with that impact.
