Parallels is an audiovisual installation by NONOTAK (Takami Nakamoto and Noemi Schipfer), originally commissioned by the STRP Biennial in Eindhoven. Parallels explores light as a substantive material, but on this occasion, space as a whole becomes their panoramic screen.
What proves incredibly engaging in this work is the installation’s ability to create 3-dimensional forms using 2-dimensional visuals.
Parallels is inspired by British artist Anthony McCall’s exploration of light and space. The space is entirely submerged into a layer of fog that is produced by two haze machines controlled via DMX, in order to maintain a specific density and quality of atmosphere. The name Parallels derives from using only lines as visual matter, allowing for a varieties of geometric light enhanced forms born of interrelated lines.
