WAVES is an interactive installation that invites the viewer to enter a spontaneous situation, experiencing it and becoming part of it. The title refers not only to the visible layer of the installation—the generative projection reminding the movement of sea waves—but primarily to all oscillations that travel through space: elementary phenomena of occurrence and alteration. The audience can influence the shape, frequency, and density of the waves, while each wave comes from the conducting motion of the participant. The interaction is unique each time, due to the result of the newly configured digital data, processed through special algorithms.
WAVES is inspired by one of the most important events in Polish art, the “Panoramic Sea Happening” created by Tadeusz Kantor. The performance took place on August 23, 1967, on the beach of the Baltic Sea in Łazy, Poland.
