Man is a part of nature as well as a part of culture. He is a part of the Creation and the creator of culture. The interactive installtion is meant to vusualise the possibilities of creative power with the help of media technology.
a video projector is installed in a birdhouse, which is hung up on the branch of a tree. The projector casts the changeable figure of a flower vertically downwards on the white bowl. By moving and tilting the bowl, the image of an archetypical flower changes: its color, form, size and structure may be manipulated directly.
Jing Hua means flowers in the mirror in Chinese. It also represents the metaphor of unreachable things. Maths as the language of nature becomes the language of the artificial.
In Chinese Jing Hua means flowers in the mirror, but here it’s an interactive installation with visual treats. A bowl that captures creative images of flowers, as projected from an overhead birdhouse. By moving and tilting the bowl, the image of an archetypical flower changes: its color, form, size and structure may be manipulated directly. Jing Hua was showcased in the botanical garden in Frankfurt during the light festival LUMINALE 2010. Many people interacted with it to create virtual flowers by tilting, shaking, turning, even knocking!
