Light and sound installation, 2013
"Vase" is Akeelah's first major exploration of light and sound installation. This form focused work pairs a light display and a soundscape created from the very materials of the piece. Two glass vases holding water refract moving lines of white light from two data projectors, filling the floor, ceiling and walls and covering the audience with light. Recordings of the fans on the data projectors are edited into a soundscape that echoes the light.
"Vase" is the first in a line of works that seek to immerse, mesmerise and emotionally move the viewer.
