Leif - Joseph La Delfa
Leif is a subtle yet constant connection between two places that diminishes the social and geographic barriers that life places between us.
The sounds of a partner getting ready for work early in the morning, the smell of onion and butter as mum or dad starts cooking, reading in the lounge room whilst your housemate watches TV. These are the natural rhythms of a household that keep communication flowing and maintains an individual’s feelings of self-worth. When we live apart from our loved ones, or alone, we miss out on these important experiences. Modern mobile technology has yet to make up the difference between staying connected and feeling connected. Leif learns the rhythmic activity of one space and represents them as light and movement in another. Making loved ones feel as if they are one room away.
