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 on a double-sided mirrored rectangular surface, installed, perpendicularly to a flat wall in which an evolutive visual composition is projected from the front of the mirror’s edge. The image visible on the mirror’s surface is the specular reflection of one side of the wall and recreates the illusion of a completed symmetrical image with the projection 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. Each instant and each visual perspective is unique and changes from one person to the other.
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.
