BLUE, a projected work by Mungki Dewi

As part of an ongoing research project, the urban landscape at West Port, Edinburgh was transformed by an impressive film work this week.

Aiming to stop and slow passers-by down, a film piece entitled ‘BLUE’ was back-projected within the first floor of Evolution House. The four glass panels were transformed into a huge projection screen showing the movement of calming waves. The scale of the work was monumental in order to achieve the mesmeric effect perceived from the imposing trait of an ocean.

The works gentle pace and movement set a visual counterpoint to the frantic pace of life in the street below, both calming the spectator and raising conscientious of the natural world.
