Inspired by the natural phenomenon of horizon, Nohlab’s new audiovisual installation in-line is ready for Sonar Istanbul 2020. Unique format of the canvas emphasizes that the experience takes form not only by the content, but also by the space it is exhibited. Lineer LED panels, by the help of reflective surfaces on two ends, turn the limited area into a limitless space and present an everchanging time-space experience. This way, the audience experiencing the installation step into a different reality than the one they are already in. One of the components of the installation, LED panels, are used as light sources. This makes light the main element of the installation, turning it into a form of light suspended into air. Pointy light sources in linear flow come together in variable timings and complex forms. These forms derive various possibilities in synergy, letting various patterns come to life. The final structure manifested as a result of this process harbors both the order and the disorder, letting these two concepts call each other into being. In-line’s audio and video elements are especially designed for a holistic perception of sound and visuals, letting the audience live a synesthetic experience.
