- Solace (2011-2013, installation)

Solace (installation) from Nicky Assmann on Vimeo.

a soap film apparatus

Solace is a cinematic installation that explores the mental process and physical activity of seeing. At regular intervals a handcrafted apparatus creates a monumental soap film as a spatial intervention. Through precise lighting the inner movement of the soap film is revealed, showing a turbulent choreography of iridescent color and fluid motion.

As gravity slowly gets a hold of the membrane the viewer can be fascinated with the phenomenon, until inevitably the fragile film bursts.

The installation was renewed in mechanics, software and the recipe in 2013, resulting in longer lasting soap films. Fractal like imagery now starts appearing in the screen. [see image below.]
