Anna Sokolova
Understand / Feel

A stream of text is projected on the layer of water. The size of letters and the speed of its scrolling do not allow the spectator to perceive the text as a whole.

In this work, Anna Sokolova tries to draw out the intuitive desire of the spectator to touch the image of text by immersing his/her hand in the water. When this happens, the speed of the scrolling changes. Each movement in the water provokes a change of speed. It is possible to find the optimal speed for reading and to restore some fragments of the text, but it is impossible to view the text in its entirety. The text is “hidden” inside projection system which both reproduced the text, and is the interface for interaction with it. This interaction allows spectator to feel and understand the text, without its reading, to apprehend an image of its maintenance. Within the border between verbal and nonverbal perception of text or between understanding and feeling disappears.
