Light Drop / 2013

 

Video documentation: Vaal Gallery, Tallinn

 

A Led light and an audio speaker is used to produce a realistic sense of water dripping, but at the same time to present the absence of expected materiality in the gallery space. On the ceiling, a led lamp flickers on the exact moment when an actually measured water drop should break off.
On the audio track played underneath there are previously recorded sounds of water splashing on an impact played. The duration of the fall and the multiple versions of the splash sounds are recorded accordingly to site specifics. This installation maps the given space by providing depth for visually unmeasurable mediums (sound, light). By creating an unreal situation, where the usual considered qualities of mediums are in conflict, it investigates the possibilities of medium transgression through a sculptural experience.
