鱼在缸中 互动媒体装置 2002
A Fish in Bowl interactive media installation 2002
A fishbowl, on which are projected images from both front ans back sides. Viewers see a small figure in glass, appearing like a fish. As soon as the viewers approach the bowl, the “fish” suddenly starts to jump as if shocked. It tries to spring out of the water and escape the aquarium. At the same time the water in the bowl waves and rises, so that the figure in the water will be overcome again.
By the means of the interaction the installation simulates both an atmosphere of isolation and communication.
