Residency | Fluid Mosaic | Kay Patru & Jihae Ko

From 1st  to 12th February 2016

FLUID MOSAIC is a project exploring the interactivity of movement, sound, and plastic material while being inspired by the process and dynamics of human biological functions. The design of the environment suggests the internal world of the human body as it takes us on a visual journey of cellular fluids and fascia network. We manipulate plastic to find its transformative properties and biological correspondence. The result is a production of physical movements, projected images and live sound derived from this material.

FLUID MOSAIC is also a metaphor of the exchange, and
collaboration between people, technology and artistic ideas. We are interested in the permeable boundaries between various artistic approaches and the emergence of mutual transformation. The meeting point of this collaboration practice is similar to the intelligent patterns of the cellular membrane also called Fluid Mosaic membrane due to its constant dynamic of selection and exchange taking place between the inside and the outside of the cell.
