Radiator is a relational participatory installation that invites audience members to sit on cushions and witness heat rising. Once a heat source has reached a high enough temperature, heat waves become visualized on the projection surface through the interaction with properly calibrated photons.
The work depicts the beauty of invisible natural phenomena. It emphasizes our blindspots and the humbling reality that the elements we cannot see are as active as those we do. The radiator is positioned between two viewers and represents a mechanized artificial sun. It provokes the idea that the technology we build is the elemental producer of our culture and the defining impetus for climate change and new stages of human evolution.
