Sudden Nature

Isaac Kerlow, 2011.

Sudden Nature is a project about the uneasy relation between Man and Nature, and how this inescapable relation often oscillates from nurturing to destruction. The project includes a variety of media ranging from visual artworks and stenciled text to interactive installations with image and sound. The Dialog of Monologs audio installation, for example, uses ultrasonic sensors to trigger statements by Man and Nature about each other. Stenciled on the wall above the sensors are words describing some of the destructive actions typical of natural hazards. The typographic style of these words is inspired by the multi-lingual signs that are common in construction sites throughout Singapore, where English, Chinese, Malay, and Tamil are de facto languages.
