Szőke Ferenc
Sounding Bowl
10. October 2014. - 13. November
Opening: 9. October 2014 at 15:00
We have a simple white pedestal in front of the white wall of the exhibition room. On top of the pedestal there is a metal singing bowl with water in it. It is not full all the way up to the rim of the bowl.

A motion sensor follows the visitors’ movements. An icon suggests permission to the visitor to stick their hand in the bowl. As soon as the visitor’s finger touches the surface of the water in the bowl, the motion sensor turns on a projector, and the wall behind the bowl slowly starts to display a splodge of light scintillating like a veil as if it were the reflection of some kind of water-light.

The scintillating splodge of light slowly intensifies, taking a few seconds to reach maximum intensity. The splodge gradually assumes the shape of a man. The sight lasts until the waves in the bowl die down.
