SEEP - House of Vnholy in collaboration with Marcus Whale
The feeling of falling through the possibilities of light
Just like water has a way of working itself through obstacles to reach the earth, light can be manipulated to act in the same way.
SEEP is a new installation work exploring the experience of seeping and falling through the movement of light and white noise. From experimental studio House of Vnholy known for their macabre and neo-gothic performance art style, this brooding and atmospheric exploration uses haze, light spirals, strobe effects and sub frequency sound to recreate a temporary feeling of falling, disorientation, compression and release.
An unnerving yet riveting experience designed to create moments of transcendence, meditation and contemplation, SEEP is a voluntary thrill for the brave and the curious.
