Two installations of the series, BROKEN PANORAMA and LOST INTERSECTIONS
were presented together for the first time at Stereolux from the 27th
of November till 16th of December 2018.
The 2 installations share the same algorithmic core.
The point of view of this virtual environment changes from one installation to the other.
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 sculpture is characterized by a uniclastic reflective surface connected to the floor.
The visuals projected onto the surface create a connection with the ground.
Light is then perceived at 3 levels: directly on the surface, as the reflection on the floor and as this second reflection onto to the sculpture.
The installation combines a set of convex surfaces placed on the floor, side by side, in the center of the space.
The reflected light rays diverge following the geometry of the surface and the generated reflections merges together creating a series light intersections.
Sharing that same algorithmic data, the two sculptures reinject the digital source into the space,
proposing two different perceptions of it.
Bringing to a real space what is created in a virtual one.
