Wheel Stories is a working model of a Ferris wheel
fairground ride, that when turned triggers a video to
play. Each carriage plays a different piece of audio,
along with video showing the same cycle of the ride
from a different viewpoint, allowing many different perspectives for the same period of time. Each
carriage contains people of various ages and backgrounds traveling on the Ferris wheel at the same
time, telling stories about what they are doing while
on the ride.

for those who see
The installation “for those who see” reveals the beauty of the
unseen. The impulse of sound creates a vortex air ring‚ invisible as the sound itself. Only fog can demonstrate this aesthetic
phenomenon. In the short moments in which the rings appear,
our visual perception connects the single rings to patterns,
surfaces, symbols, or bodies. Depending on the focus of the
observer, these can be viewed as a whole picture or as individual fragments, inviting contemplation and fascination.
