This is my design research in the form of interactive installation designed and fabricated with Mehran Gharleghi and in collaboration with Irina Dashkovsky, Omar Ibraz and Tom Scopes. The installation was exhibited during Biennale Sessions at the Salle d’Armi all’ Arsenale. The opening was accompanied by movement performance The Bridging Lines – Arsenale with choreography by Yong Min Cho and in collaboration with Accademia Teatrale Veneta and Jinwoo Jung (Guest Performer) and music by Leah Wingham.

More information about the symposium Fundamentals of Space: Colour and Line for which this installation was made could be found on: http://www.labiennale.org/en/architecture/exhibition/biennale-sessions/abstracts.html and http://www.aaschool.ac.uk//VIDEO/lecture.php?ID=2682

Soap bubbles were connected to Isaac Newton’s innovative theories on Optics. In his treatise on Optics Newton acknowledged that his own observations of soap bubbles contributed to the development of his theory on colours. Newton showed that different thicknesses of soap film reflect different colours. Soap film appears white at its thickest, black at its thinnest, and as it becomes thinner it shows a series of hues. Newton recorded by studying iridescent diaphanous surface for the complex succession of colours all the optical changes that occurred on the surface of the bubble.
