Waterfly Effect, is conceived as a living, manipulable work that establishes an obvious connection between the physical and digital world, a world that is usually called as the “liquid space”. Through a simple mechanical interface, Solimán López develops a live multimedia session that is after available to the audience, which can experience the sensation of moving a digital sea with their own hands. A way back and forth between the digital and the analogical, between the real and the imagined, since all action in the physical world has its response in the virtual and vice versa.
