The Bridge is an interactive art installation that questions the boundaries in our understanding of the concept of being together. We are more than we see, we connect deeper than we think and we communicate with more than words.
Using multiple multimedia technologies, The Bridge invites the audience to walk toward each other, to rediscover the deep connection of eye contact, and to reflect on the way our energetic bodies interact. We are molecules of water, we interact and interfere, we vibrate and resonate and no virtual surrogate can replace the fundamental state of being together, face to face. Crossing the bridge becomes an experience that can reveal the unseen, a joyful meditation on our true nature.
The speed and the movement patterns of the audience, the distance or the closeness between them, their anxiety, or their tranquility create the whole experience of the installation. Nothing is predetermined, all the video, light, and sound content as also the water movement is generated by the audience.
Balancing between definitions of observer and participant, the visitors are encouraged to cross the bridge. Therefore, the audience is both seeing and being part of the installation.
