‘O V A L’ is a collaboration between Lenka Novakova and Otso Lahdeoja developed with the support of Hexagram, presented in 2013 in the Hexagram Black Box at Concordia University in Montreal, QC, and Currents International Media Festival, Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2014.
Concept/Description: O V A L is a large-scale installation combining glass, sound and light into a multimodal sculptural space. 10 glass sheets (190 x 60 cm) are hung from the ceiling, forming an oval shape (12m x 5m). 10 large sheets of glass are hanging in a dark room. The glass sheets vibrate and emit sound, forming a spatial polyphony of sonic objects. Video footage of the spectators themselves is projected on the glass sheets, creating a maze of self-portrait reflections and transparencies. The spectator is immersed into a chimerical space of sonic and visual illusions.
