Frame of Reference is a piece that creates a direct connection to a (space) - time relativity concept. Time does not progress at the same rate for everyone, everywhere, and the rate at which time passes depends on your “frame of reference”, as it is for the position of the visitor engaging with the piece.
The artwork consists of a double-sided mirrored rectangular surface with a visual composition projected in front of the mirror’s edge. This configuration recreates the illusion of a completed symmetrical image on the other side of the mirror. The entire visualization of the piece is unique for each visitor and linked to their position in space.
The minimalist visual composition echoes the principle of rotation of a time measurement device and a constant cycle of perpetual evolution. Its luminous character, defined by the video projection, confides the ultimate ephemeral aspect of the piece, which further strengthens its relationship with perceptual temporal immateriality.
