ADAM WADEY | WHAT MOVES?
2017 | Secret Garden Party
‘What Moves?’ presents an impossible spectacle. Using light and water, and drawing on the ‘persistence of vision’ phenomenon, it creates a choreography of static water streams seemingly suspended against gravity.
Through synchronising the frequencies of the oscillation of the water outlets with strobe lighting, the installation allows the weightless-water effect to be viewed with the naked eye.
The piece induces a heightened awareness and appreciation of our sensory abilities and limitations. It encourages us to reflect on the knowledge we consider infallible and where the limitations of disbelief lie.
Copper piping, speaker drivers, strobe lights, water management system, sine-wave generator, amplifier, custom lasercut components.
