RE: by Carolien Teunisse and Bram Snijders [Sitd] is an ultraminimal installation that takes full advantage of the characteristics of projection mapping. Images beamed from a projector fixed in midair are reflected off three mirrors and projected back onto their source, as a result which the surface of the projector appears to liquefy, undulate, and whirl.
Making the video equipment itself a part of the fiction of the work provokes cynical laugther from audiences, but at the same time one can sense in the work's minimalism a skepitical scrutiny of the orientation towards large-scale projects that is a tendency within projection mapping.
This enables expression that makes use of properties peculiar to the projection surface, such as light weaving trough windows of reflective tiles, while eliminating as much as possible elements that highlight the boundry between image and reality, giving rise to a peculiar reality.
