Drawing on the Water Surface Created by the Dance of Koi and People - Infinity

Koi swim on the surface of water that stretches out into infinity. People can walk into the water. The movement of the koi is influenced by the presence of people in the water and also other koi. When the fish collide with people they turn into flowers and scatter. Throughout a year, the flowers that bloom will change along with the seasons.


The trajectory of the koi is determined by the presence of people and these trajectories trace lines on the surface of the water.


The work is rendered in real time by a computer program. It is neither prerecorded nor on loop. The interaction between the viewer and the installation causes continuous change in the artwork. Previous visual states can never be replicated, and will never reoccur.
