INTERACTIVE WATER INSTALLATION
In contrast to more science based concepts, this work was influenced by gallery location directly adjacent to Rhine and small tributary. Autumn leaves floating past presented me with plan.

To build installation Im Fluss, pool was formed in gallery space and leaves floated on to cover surface. These moved around gently in ambient air and water stream, producing kaleidoscope of colour. The changing pattern of floating leaves and stalks was projected onto gallery walls using theatre lights.
