The Cave

audio-visual sculpture

The Cave

The sculpture is made out of video fragments that were recorded inside a cave in Haren in the Netherlands. The sun was shining through a waterfall which was stationed in front of the cave and as the light shone through, flickering sunlight appeared on the walls of the cave. The sculpture is formed with these video fragments and new shapes appear through the composition of how these fragments are put together. It is based on the form of the cave itself, the texture, 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 forms of the sculpture.

The video sculpture will be set up in a dark space where different perspectives of the sculpture will be projected onto a simple metal structure in the middle of the space. The metal structure consists of a few differently shaped plates that have been hammered into organic curves and will be hanging from the ceiling in the middle of the space.
