This audiovisual installation triggers a synesthetic experience by way of five audio/video devices pairing speakers and monitors.
The title "rheo", the Greek word for "flow", was inspired by the expression "Everything flows (panta rhei)" that embodies the thoughts of ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus. As one can guess from this title, images fusing live-action and computer graphics elaborately interlocked with sounds blending field recordings and electronic sounds generate one current that integrates simplicity and complexity, space and time, to stir up human perception.
