QUADD – Jan Hladil

  • Installation

Archsymmetry. Supercomposition. Reflection. Hyperreality. 4 dimensions. 4 elements. 4 seasons. 4 water states. 4 cardinal points. 4 cherubs. 4 noble truths of Buddha. 4 is the number of the cosmic order. QUADD’s audio-visual installation interprets this symbolism and transforms it into a cosmic experience through the specific aesthetics of laser imaging and semi-transparent mirrors. Seemingly unrelated matter is connected by the intensity of laser beams. The QUADD project builds on the work Resonator, which Jan Hladil presented at the Signal Festival in 2016.
