At the first time I saw that, I got closer and I felt confused. It was a kind of art to appreciate or an invitation to enter? That was made of modulations, light effects, colours between tones of blue and green. Must be something to experiment, I thought. So I went ahead and I got into.
I felt immediately a subtle texture and some resistance to my movements. Something that reminded me what was forgotten. I’m not able to understand what could be that, but there was something familiar. And I have continued to experiment.
All changed how much more I moved around. With my arms and my hands, I perceived that I could move myself to anywhere. In a slow down and I felt that with my legs I could quietly take the feet of the support and stay in suspension.
Vertically.. Laterally… and horizontally I decided to stay. Then, with eyes closed, I continued to move around and gradually, I felt comfortable to change all that. Every drawing I did with my body, changing every moment, each setting before formulated. Feeling myself more and more involved in that environment. Until I moved down. But immediately I returned. Before I needed to have air in the lungs!
Thus, a deep breath, I sank and looked around. All very different from what I had seen outside. I looked forward, sideways, backward. And that seemed all blurry! I couldn’t understand what did everything change again. But I was still there, exhaling slowly, investigating that place. Moving me everywhere. Until I saw myself doing an apnea promenade! I thought one more time: That should be an interactive art installation.
