SPECULAR SERIES | FOCAL POINT
Presented at : BAM Festival | Liège - October 2017
About the project:
The Specular series is a project that presents a set of audio-visual installations of different light sculptures created through the use of projected light and reflective materials.
Each sculpture redirects light in a different way and the reflective property of the material allows each sculpture to blend with its environment while also modifying our perception of its shape.
Networks of algorithms generate interlinked sound and light.
A cycle repeats but with infinite variations in multi-temporal-scales.
The piece aims to represent a constant search for perfection; a quest that is here simultaneously emphasized and disrupted by the subtle differences seeping through the repetition of each sequence.
Through this process, the seemingly strict uniform nature of the composition is infused back with a dynamic sense of reality.
The main component of the installation is a semi-parabolic mirror.
The projected light converges into a single point, called focus, set at the center of the shape.
The sculpture is slightly inclined to face the visitor, and creates the illusion of a continuous light projection through the mirror.
