Disney's fantasy movie "Fantasia" gave us all false hope when it comes to the magic behind composing music (and hanging out in forests in general). But we can thank artist Robert Seidel for creating the grown-up, "Fantasia"-esque installation, "Advection"—a perfect title, considering the word by definition describes "the transfer of heat or matter by the flow of a fluid, esp. horizontally in the atmosphere or the sea." The installation is a two-channel video projection displayed on a water fountain and pond in Bad Rothenfelde, Germany.
The reflections from the resting water and the shadows from passersby add an additional layer of interactive visuals past the planned digital image. The end product is an ethereal mix of music, digital projection art and fantasy. Check out the video below to get a better feel for the project:
The view is great close up or far away. Catch the details in the water droplets and streams or watch the entire image switch colors and form depending on the projection and the visitors walking by. Seidel is no stranger to installation art—he's created similarly abstract projects and short art films that have appeared at the Vienna Independent Shorts festival and Arts Electronica.
This public installation is on display until January 5th as a part of the 4th Lichtsicht Biennale.
