Аквариум / Fish tank, installation, video mapping, sound by Schumer, 2015



The project is a video installation employing video mapping technology to create an illusion of a tilted aquarium filled with a mass of fish projected onto on a parallelepiped. From time to time the water level in the tank drops at a high speed. Because of the disturbance, fish moves chaotically, and in pauses between falls in the water level, it tries to occupy a favorable position at the water's edge to gain access to oxygen. This process is cyclical because once the fish finds itself in a dry aquarium, at this very moment the water starts to come back, filling the tank to the top. The project is an allegory of life; the history of mankind is fast forwarded showing with equal speed how mankind multiplies and consumes what is needed for its being.
