Streaming Pool is a contemplative interactive installation of clusters of wheel-thrown plates and shallow bowls hand painted in a spectrum of pastel colors, and hand printed with patterns and designs inspired by nature. Some of the vessels contain speakers from which sounds of social interaction, nature, and art making come together to fill the space. The sounds are independent from each other, yet the integrated aural landscape reminds us of our everyday existence, and the materiality of culture. Streaming pool also serves as a metaphor for social networks and the ways in which we connect. It is also meant to remind us that despite our trust and dependency in high technology, we still have to contend with the immediate handmade material world.
