Artist Statement:


    A new subconscious feeling is born when people drinking coffee at a table in a cafe see the visible aqua symbol representing the interval of sequence in their body language. A cup placed on the table leaves simulated circular water waves. At the same time, a small shadow fish appears and swims toward the other cups or, if it is alone, around the table and back. The movement of the shadow fish is affected by the number of participants and their activities. Up to four participants can experience both worlds, conscious and subconscious, simultaneously in the interactive installation.
