Mitsu Salmon & Milad Mozari
Resonate Traces, 2018
From March-June 2018, Mozari and Salmon were artists in residence at Taipei Artist Village where they worked closely with botanists from Taipei Botanical Gardens. Using this research as well as actual archives from the Taipei Botanical Gardens they created an installation using live plants, projection, and sound.
Small-scale objects like hiking trail information stands are incorporated with the interplay between the plants' and audience's shadows. On the floor is a book written by Ryozo Kanehira, Salmon's great grandfather. The projected video slowly changes colors and represents different parts of the history explored such as red for fire, and blue for cyanotypes and sunrises and sunsets.
