SOLID STATE is an audio-visual installation, which deals with rave experience and transcendence. The room is transformed through the use of light, fog and surround sound into a multi-sensory hallucinative and ecstatic state. It utilizes synchronous as well as shifting visual and auditive patterns to re-shape the perceived geometry of the room. Due to the visibility limited to one meter the visitor can’t perceive the dimensions of the space he/she enters, resulting in disorientation and the need to let go of conscious control. The intensely strobing and continuously shifting visual stimuli impose intense patterns on the retina. The installation is realised in two adjacent rooms connected by an open door, making use of perceptual phasing between the two spaces, thus overemphasizing the symbol of the door with it's trip-like and almost sacramental appearance. Expect something between a cognitive experiment and post-rave.
This trailer consists of superimposed video recording of the vernissage, aimed at creating an impression of what the installation feels like. The live perception is of course different and greatly amplified, as the retina reacts differently to the direct stimuli as to a video and the spatial perception can not be adequately recreated with video.
