ZEE (2008) - Kurt Hentschlaeger


Documentation of the installation ZEE by Kurt Hentschlaeger from this past weekend's STRP Festival. Footage by/from mediateletipos.

ZEE is a "mind-scape" in which artificial fog and stroboscopic light fully obscure the physical installation space, resulting in an almost complete disconnect from the without and offering an entry towards a surprise within.

Stroboscopic- and pulse light filtering through the thick fog augment an impression of a luminescent kinetic sphere wherein the environment acts as the seeding stimulant and you synthesize the impression.

Based on the research and findings with FEED, the performance, ZEE is expanding on composing with multiple interfering strobe lights amidst fog and the effects those have on a human perception and decoding apparatus: the brain.

A surround sound-scape synchronizes to interference phenomena - of what could be described as a psychedelic architecture of pure light.

I literally had to turn it off because I was experiencing shortness of breath. That was very strange.

That's very interesting - but I'm not sure if I understand it

I'm the person who recorded that video :) The fact is that you don't have to understand anything, it is something about perception and feelings. It's hard to explain with words, but I assure you that it's really overwhelming!
