jason bruges studio: peasouper the images of visitors to the space appear as though through a thick fog

images of visitors are rendered in four fog-filled transparent tanks lining the center of the space. lit in different colours, these tanks replay the footage on a time delay from one another, so that a visitor moving through the space continues with each step to see his actions repeated in front of him.

the fog not only creates an ethereal, distorted silhouette but also generates a more three-dimensional impression of the images. the effect suggests the experience of wandering through the ‘pea soup fog’ of london, encountering through the cloudy air the broken lightbeams and blurry visages of passers-by.
