"Linking art, science, spirituality and technology, this interactive installation is the product of the artist's exploration of virtual reality as a sculptural medium, and is centered upon a floor based projection of computer generated 3D images.
These virtual forms represent the content of an 'alembic retort', a device used by alchemists searching for the philospher's stone, and are based upon the four alchemical elements of fire, earth, air and water.
Via electric field sensing, the movement of the viewer effects the continual metamorphosis of these simulated forms,
from geometric crystalline structures to amorphous liquid shapes, captivating the senses in a unique, powerfully mesmerising experience."
