The project creates a calming art experience in an anxious interior space such as a doctor’s waiting room. The installation includes a projection painting and an aquarium behind it. It captures images of live fish in real-time and projects them as their out of body spirits swimming in a Classical Chinese lotus pool. The fish on the wall are idealized versions of the live fish, however perhaps the projections better express their essence. The project asks what is real, the artist’s rendering or the subject itself?
