Protrude, Flow uses black, magnetic fluid whose three-dimensional patterns freely transform in response to the sounds and voices in the installation space by means of digital computer control. The patterns are simultaneously projected onto a screen. The fluid moves with a physical realism and formative, dynamic beauty and power unseen until now. This stunning work has opened a new realm of expression for the media arts.
