Â« â€¦ the basis of existence comprises three elements: this, the
impediment and that. Â» â€” D. Harms
Impediment is an interactive installation that explores nonverbal communication process of the whole thingâ€™s creation. Deep problems of human’s misunderstanding. We donâ€™t know how another person perceive and goes through the space, time and existence.
By collective interaction with sound boxes people try to establish an interconnection and find a harmony between actions. Their efforts visualized on the screen in the form of some fictional world and coherence of participantâ€™s actions allows to build a structured picture.
