Aalto University – New Media

Curated by Akshay Roongta

Time: 11:00 – 20:00

Venue: Sukerkar House

How do you create stillness in the busiest place in the world?

Northern Shadows is an art installation that imports Finnish silence into Goa. It is a spatial symphony for a dark room— with glass bowls filled with water, projectors, a motion-tracking device Kinect and one or two participants.

The visitor enters a dark installation room. As she moves, the projector starts to beam on to the bowls. Wherever she decides to walk, the projector beams the reflected light on that part of the wall. Little shaking of the ground caused by her feet  makes the reflections on the water restless and unclear. It is only through standing still that the visitor is able to see the northern lights.
