Case 04 - Prima Materia

2013, CG video 1080p, 2m 40s loop, Edition of 5 + 1 AP + 1 EC

For a duration of 2m 40s the refractive index of a fluctuating fluid changes from 3 to 0.001. Different morphologies arise and alternate in a continuous flow. The title relates to the mythologies of changing matter such as « prima materia », the ancestral fluid used to produce the philosopher's stone. This « case study » is part of the long-term project « Cave Caustics ».
