THE LONG NOW (2015)
Verena Friedrich / Germany
THE LONG NOW aims at extending the life span of a soap bubble. A machinery generates a bubble, sends it to a chamber with a controlled atmosphere and keeps it there in suspension for as long as possible. The project is presented in the form of an experimental set-up in which the newly created soap bubble oscillates permanently between fragility and stability.
THE LONG NOW (2015) was realised within the framework of EMARE Move On at OBORO’s New Media Lab, Montréal, and a residency at Rustines|Lab, Perte de Signal, Montréal. With the support of the Culture 2013 Programme of the European Commission, the Goethe Institut, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and FACT.
