1986

400 x 800 x 400 cm

Collection of the Artist.

Two mixed media performing sculptures enact a computer controlled 6 minute drama which includes movement, song, the transformation of sound to light, and a laser display.

First exhibited at the Art and Science Venice Biennale in 1986 in the Art, Technology, and Computers Section in the Arsenale. Lijn found the separation and segregation of the senses to be an impoverishing aspect of our culture and tried to find ways in which she could unify and cross-fertilize our senses.
