Morphic Resonance


Morphic Resonance, 2011-2012
Performative Video installation
Video:  Angie Eng
Sculpture:  Sofi Hémon
Sound: Pascal Battus

Morphic Resonance is a series of performative video installations by Angie Eng and Sofi Hémon.  Hémon builds organic structures of indigenous fibers as well as recycled materials. Her sculptures have been deeply inspired by the Amazon after researching indigenous tribes and spending numerous art residencies in Brazil. In real time, Eng maps multiple video channels of drawings and video loops onto the structures. As Hémon constantly changes the structures, Angie Eng captures on camera close ups of her weaving, sculpting and composing in real-time. Like kinetic sculpture, the installation is in constant movement through time and space.

The title refers to the term coined by Rupert Scheldrake who theorized a memory of nature… the idea of mysterious telepathy-type interconnections between organisms and of collective memories within species.
