Convergence portrays four different people, who were asked: Where do you go to connect with yourself? Luftwerk filmed each person walking towards and away from the camera within a landscape of his or her choice. Through video compositing—overlapping the two different movement directions—the scenes feature moments of self-encounters. Four varying convergences were projected onto four yarn-string curtain walls suspended in the shape of a square. The open square design allows viewers to pass through the structure and view the image from both the inside and outside. Convergence represents the nature of self-encounter, and is tangibly accentuated through the physicality of the material.
