Passage presented by Enbridge Centre
Presented by: Enbridge Centre
An emotional journey through sound and light.
Passage is an immersive, minimalist, contemplative and interactive artwork that explores the emotional connections we develop with light and sound. The concept of the artwork takes root in the definition of the word passage itself: the act of moving through or past something on the way from one place to another, and also the process of transition from one state to another in a temporal dimension.
The installation consists of 20 circles of light that form a tunnel which bystanders will go through, and a sound system. The passage through the tunnel activates light animations and sounds. Each configuration has its own ambiance.
Passage refers to this enigmatic moment between life and death, figured here as a pleasant space as part of another temporal dimension. A personal and sensory experience that remains playful. The installation consists of a sound system and a series of lit rings which animates and pulses from the movement of the people walking the passage. Over time, one can experience many different light and animation configuration, each offering its own ambience and experience.
PASSAGE refers to this enigmatic moment between life and death, that has been documented as near-death experiences (NDE) from testimonies of people who almost passed away. Such experiences may encompass a variety of sensations including detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of a light. These experiences were taken into consideration in the creation of the artwork, in the conceptual design and in the sound and visual/light design, and is figured here as a pleasant space as part of another temporal dimension.
