The Silent Chaos of Colors, 2020/2021

The Silent Chaos of Colors is an interactive video projection whose effect is an orgy of colors. Instead of physical colored pigments as are thrown into the air in India during the festival of Holi, digital color particles are swirled up in the work when people walk past the projection screen. The silhouettes of people can be seen standing in front of it. The work seems to encourage the viewer to take part interactively with their body and form the color effects in the projection either alone or with others.

Supported by the UNESCO City of Media Arts Karlsruhe 2020 project support program for media art.
