Installed in the center of the exhibition space is a cube-shaped structure covered with a semitransparent membrane, inside which a female sculpture is placed. When the visitor steps on a treadmill next to the structure and begins to walk, video images of a woman (performed by Yoko Ando) appear on one side of the structure, accompanied by Michael Rother's soundtrack and lights that gradually envelop the exhibition space. With increasing intensity of the visitor's walking movement, the initially rather listless woman becomes increasingly active, while the sound reverberating across the room transforms into somewhat happier melodies. Operated by way of the visitor's involvement, the work's underlying system hints at the human mind's basic orientation toward a positive influence of the presence of others on an individual's obstructed consciousness, and highlights at once the existence of the visitor's own inner energy.
Becoming "light" to liberate the bodies and minds of others
An installation expressing the discharge of human awareness and primordial energy.
