Water or More

Water or More is an interactive installation inspired by the reflection of “water” from literature, poems and films. The project creates different forms of interactive graphic of water to reflect water’s poetic imaginary. Thundering rains, toppling waterfalls, flowing rivers, droplets of scattered dew, trickles of melting ice – facets of water are used to describe the wide-ranging emotions of human existence. The project explores how to optimize space, combine the real and virtual, and provide the audience with an immersive experience. In this installation, audience’s body motions are tracked by a sensor, and the water effects respond and reflect their movements.
