ADVECTION _ Robert Seidel
2-Channel Video Projection on a Water Fountain
Dimension Fountain 10 x 7 m / Background 35 x 50 m
4th Lichtsicht Biennale _ Bad Rothenfelde / Germany _ lichtsicht-biennale.de
27th September 2013 – 5th January 2014
The work advection consists of several visual études projected on the continuously changing volume of a water fountain. Interconnected with both the circadian rhythm of their natural surroundings as well as the meteorological nuances of seasonal change from autumn to winter – the fixed études alter their density, texture and luminescence over the exhibition time.
This highly organic pictorial frame spawns a contemporary form of moving abstract paintings or associative drawings. The volumetric fountain, the pond reflections and iridescent flares shape a plasmatic spatial system, which is extended by a secondary video projection. This additional layer illuminates the surrounding area, integrating vegetation and the passing visitors into an abstracted mirage-stage.
Here, twining lines change their density within the evolving volume as fragile light patterns float in the bank of fog. The skeletal music composition is augmented by the sound of rippling water and the rushing fountain. Ultimately flickering projection segments and the emerging natural airstreams break the fluctuating formations, making every loop a unique permutation.

For the second year, jotta have collaborated with Fallon Film to bring new pieces of work from the jotta community of emerging artists and designers to 2011’s Latitude Festival. A ground-breaking water technique produces a giant hyper-holographic 3D moving-image display floating above the lakes at the centre of the festival, where short films and animations by 12 jotta artists were projected in truly unique surroundings.# vimeo.com/29726292 Uploaded 1,404 Plays 23 Likes 0 Comments
