Aqueous

23 Sep

I went to school on Saturday to complete an oil painting assignment of my shoes (guess which? heeheehee). There were still some zombies milling around, but otherwise the place was empty; perfect timing to take pictures inside one of the galleries where an artist, Ivan Abreu, is exhibiting his installation piece:

High Tide

High Tide is a unique art-piece specifically synchronised with Singapore’s coastal currents. This installation uses buoys previously used in the same sea. The buoys are attached to an electronic system which concurrently tracks the ebb and flow of Singapore’s tides. During the exhibition, the buoys will vary their altitude according to this information and oscillate at a very slow speed (approximately 1 millimetre every 4 seconds). Movement is subtle and perceived visually. The work suggests how man and nature’s forces are inextricably connected.

While I can’t connect with his vision, I love the colours and simplicity of this piece. It feels like the mechanism in the center is a puppet master of sorts :P
