Passage by Serge Maheu is an immersive, minimalist, contemplative and interactive artwork that explores the emotional connections between light and sound. The concept takes root in the definition of the word passage itself: the act of moving through or past something on the way from one place to another, and also the process of transition from one state to another in a temporal dimension. The artwork is directly inspired by readings done on Near Death Experience (NDE)*.
The passage through the tunnel activates light animations and sounds. Each configuration has its own ambiance.
*A near-death experience (NDE) is a personal experience associated with death or impending death. Such experiences may encompass a variety of sensations including detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of a light.
