Family Portrait

In collaboration with the Innovative Award-winning Iris-Project from Leipzig (Germany), Vika Kova creates a video&sound artwork, called Family Portrait, in continuation of her LAND of GOOD project dedicated to the making of a better world. 

Astounded by the natural beauty of Iris-Project’s photographs of the human eye, taken from the real people of different ages, nationalities, backgrounds, and genders around the world, Kova collaborates on the positive message of interconnectivity and oneness, seeing all humans as one family.

Family Portrait is an accelerated exchange of materialized energy through image, light, and sound, transmitting re-connective healing frequencies. 


Images:  The iris as a human prism is highlighting the infinite beauty and diversity of people all around the world. By outlining the uniqueness of individuals the images aim at weaving a connection between all humans. With the self-developed macro-camerasystem, Felix Mayrl and Olivier Colin (Iris-Project) understand their artwork as a contemporary version of humanistic photography. 

Video:  Using special effects, blending techniques and audio-visual technologies, Vika Kova employs photographs of Iris-Project to take viewers around the globe to observe the oneness and connectedness through diversity and complex structure of a modern world.

Sound:  The idea of the soundtrack is inspired by Dr. Masuro Emoto’s “Water experiment”. He documented how a certain kind of frequencies can improve the mood, the vibe and the state of mind, as some sound-waves have the capacity to influence people on the molecular level. 

Customized editions:  It is possible to take iris-photographs of your own family members! We photograph and record voices of all generations, creating the most unusual family portrait ever, because the iris and the voice-frequencies are carrying full information about somebody's life. Apart from the entertaining process of this unique kind of photography,  it can also be a memorable get-together family event.

Soundtrack by Little Ambient Machine.
