'Slue is elusive and beautiful, but sometimes frightening and scary because of the setting and the sound. It is a thin line between fascination and the fear that the rope will snap.' – Ingeborg van Lieshout,

Meaning word ‘Slue’: to turn or slide violently or uncontrollably.

Slue is the pumped up sister of 10 Meters of Sound, where multiple elastic cables are stretched across a large space suspended above a row of lights, rotating at alternately accelerating and decelerating tempos, painting the air with “whooshing” sounds and streaks of coloured light over time. Slue is a study of chaotic patterns that arise in the interaction between whipping elastic, the frequencies of light and its effect on the perception of the viewer in combination with the architectural / landscape surroundings.

The installation was made in collaboration with Mischa Daams and premiered at Into The Great Wide Open festival on Vlieland, where it stretched amongst trees in the woods.
