"Misty Way" installation is based on research conducted with scientists Jean-Marc Chomaz and Camille Duprat that looks at collecting water from fog. In this installation, light droplets of various sizes (captured with a fast camera with high magnification) are projected onto multiple textile screens made from parallel threads, especially designed and produced for this piece. The light drops passing along and through the fibers (moving in a wind generated by ventilators) are captured by the ‘textile’ and cast a second projection on the floor. They literally splash on the spectator and on the floor creating an immersive environment where viewers are submerged in a ‘virtual’ mist of widely spattered drops of light, shadows and sound.
