THE MEMORY ROOM
An installation for 3-D computer animation,video, granite sculpture and salt.
"The Memory Room" is a big room, where each wall is a back projection,
a bit like a VR-Cave.
Two of the side walls are showing a wall to wall 3D computer
animation, forming from time to time the word
On the far end wall, a big size projection of compromising
images: war, explosions,
victims, demonstrations, violence.. in a sepia color,
the other smaller, a little out of
focus and a bit slanted, showing a blurry sequence of a child blowing soap bubbles.
In the middle of this room, a big open book made of granite is lying on
a marble plate (1)
which is hanging in the air suspended by thin iron threads.
The entire floor
is covered with coarse salt.
Sound: a childs' voice softly counting the years from 1901 - 1999
plus a composition by Remy Chatton,
evoking a subaquatic atmosphere.
