FRAME OF REFERENCE - V.1
Presented at : Galerie R3 | from February 8 to March 4, 2018 | Trois Rivière (QC), Canada
« FRAME OF REFERENCE » consists on a 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 projection is visually divided by the mirror into two almost symmetrical visual evolution. 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 composition recreates a geometric representations of time. The two sides of each canvas are similar but they evolve really slowly with subtle differences on either sides. The entire visualization of the piece is unique for each visitor and linked to their position in space.
The piece creates a direct connection to a (space) - time relativity concept.
Time does not progress at the same rate for everyone, everywhere.
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.
Each instant and each visual perspective is unique and changes from one person to the other.
