reversible reaction

reversible reaction takes its inspiration from the chemical phenomenon in which reactants and products can form each other, oscillating between chemical states. Contrasting sonic and visual environments create an abstracted microscopic world in this installation: molecular bonds join and break, atoms float in suspension, and the environment changes states when “catalyst” participants disturb the system’s equilibrium via infrared camera tracking.
