Healing Pool

Brian Knep

Healing Pool is a large, interactive floor projection that reacts to viewer movement. When viewers interact with the work by walking, rolling or dancing across it, the organic patterns on the floor pull away from them. After the viewers leave, the patterns grow back, but in a slightly transformed way; through this process, a cumulative record of each interaction is created and revealed. Brian Knep takes inspiration for Healing Pool from public reflecting pools and historic spaces, such as the Duomo in Florence, Italy, where people share a transformative experience that is at once interactive, meditative and formal.
