REFLEXION – In Sync / Out of Sync by Claudia Angel Robles

Claudia Robles Angel: REFLEXION installation

UNPAINTED artist Claudia Robles Angel presents the Installation and Performance REFLEXION – In Sync / Out of Sync.

REFLEXION – In Sync / Out of Sync- invites 2x visitors (e.g. couples) to experiment together with their heartrates. By measuring both heartbeats, the goal of this sound and light installation is to enable visitors to synchronise the rates of their hearts, to reflect thereafter upon the inner pulsations of their own bodies and the possibilities of harmony (in sync) or disharmony (out of sync) between two people. Sound and light follow and reflect the different situations of synchronisation /non-synchronisation.

During the opening, a performance introduces the main principles of the installation featuring also dance and live-percussion.
