Installation Art

The central element of this video sculpture by Obscura is a small pyramid that lights up with projected imagery and sound when the audience triggers it by pulling one of the four ropes that are hanging from the ceiling. The pyramid is enclosed in a glass montre which also functions as a mirror box.
Because of the mirroring the audience sees multiple pyramids that seem to form a landscape. In that way the installation refers directly to the kaleidoscope (the title of the installation being the name of the inventor of the kaleidoscope).
The Brewster Box indirectly resembles other old inventions such as the peephole theatre or the stereoscopic View Master toy in the way you observe a world that seems to extend beyond the confines of the small box.

Sound design by Tim Hinman

The sculpture was exhibited at Click Festival 2012.
