This work seeks to intuitively approach scientific and artistic research, inviting the viewer to participate in a transmedia experiment. The sound of the action on the platform is used as the mechanical force that moves the water in the microscope, establishing a communication between our scale of observation and the microscopic, thus evidencing the invisible relationships that occur in our environment and that are imperceptible to the naked eye.
In Microscopic Landscape, Kaulen draws a connection between that which is imperceptible to our own eye to our actions. In this artwork, we are as much the subject of the artistic experience as we are the experiment itself, particularly when we try to reconnect to the microscopic universe. Sound is used as a tool to introduce changes and to create a new balance into the sample of seawater that shows the microscope, being a powerful communication tool to establish a link between what we can see and what we can't. And as our Interaction with the artwork changes the intensity of the sound, so is the sound transformed into the movement of the creatures living in the water. This enables direct visualization of the impact of our actions and at the same time, an inter-species and inter-worlds communication without leaving Earth, venturing into the depths of a universe often unknown to us.
