Supernova combines and synchronises laser, projection and sound. Within the exhibition space hangs a single glass ball. A laser forms a large cone around the ball which gradually minimises into a single beam. This beam is precisely directed onto the centre of the ball therefore instantaneously refracting the focused light throughout the room. Simultaneously a sub-frequency bass tone is activated. Mapped to the laser cone is a projected white circle. This process loops indefinitely.
The work attempts to give a momentary and meditative abstract visual and sonic imprint of the elemental makeup of our environment, the aesthetics of technological synchronisation and the paradoxical duality of quantum and cosmic space.
