Through the interactive visual installation “Fluid Connectivité”, the artist encourages us to visualize the path to collective connection. Being connected in the flow requires connection to self which is essential and affects the way we interact with others. You are invited to step into the flow, journey to the center and become one with your senses – through light, sound and visual art. To feel the flow of energy branching out – representing many people coming together. We are part of the continual flow in the universe. Whether we are aware or not, we are adding and sharing our experience to the collective. By understanding it, we can better understand each other regardless of where we come from. Fluid Connectivité is designed to be a visual and audio experience. Visitors will be invited to stand on the floor of interwoven fabrics representing a flow of energy – similar to the flow of energy that moves through public spaces on a daily basis as people of diverse backgrounds cross paths and co-create a vibrancy.
