Hollow is an audio-visual installation comprised of several copper and brass plates that have been hammered into organic curves, a video which is projected onto the metal plates, and an immersive soundscape. The piece can also be exhibited as a performative installation where the installation becomes a foundation for a collaboration between three dancers and three musicians that improvise around the elements in the space. The various elements within the space act as a materialised score for the musicians which gives them ideas for improvising, interacting with the electronics and being in conversation with the sounds that the dancers create with the metal structure.


The video sculpture is made out of video fragments that are projected onto the metal structure. The fragments were recorded inside a cave. The sun was shining through a waterfall flowing in front of the cave and as the light shone through, flickering sunlight appeared on the walls of the cave. The composition of how these fragments are put together is based on the form of the cave itself, the movement of the camera and the variations in the movements of the sunlight flickering. The sculpture is in constant transformation as the movements of the camera and the flickering sunlight work together to develop the shape of the sculpture. How the video projects onto the metal structure draws out certain forms as well, adding another layer to the transformative aspect of the sculpture.


The soundscape is made from various hydrophone recordings. Taking inspiration from the cave’s surroundings, I explored sounds of the metal structure in water, starting from minimal sounds such as frozen water and drops hitting the metal to ice melting and a stronger flow of water running against the metal.
