Performing Space/ Govanhill Baths
The interior space is represented as a sequence of slow-motion performances. Evaporation, condensation, materials, textures, and the way these respond to the constantly changing environment, compose a dynamic system that informs the space. Therefore, ‘space becomes a kinetic force – field of fluid relations’ (Hill, 2006), and reveals its cinematic expression. The intervention of the space, the ‘door mesh’, creates an optical game in which droplets of water, gravity and light compose ephemeral patterns, optical effects and create the decoration of the space. The light behind the mesh reflects the droplets and thus, they appear as luminous pixels that are animated due to gravity and the human activity.
