8-channel audiovisual installation for actuated trays filled with water

Romans sculpture produced many copies of Greek statues from the idealism period.
While striving for realism they found of uttermost importance to preserve the ideal beauty embodied in Greek sculpture for posterity.
That ideal is a promise.
Those icons are lost futures.
Re-enacting those still poses and giving life to them is an attempt to regain contact with such a legacy.
Once that fail, what is left are forms; structures and nostalgia.
