“The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.”
An Exhibition exists only with the interaction between the object and the viewer. The user is viewing is viewing the object and the object in turn is watching the user. This interaction becomes an infinite play, each one in turn affecting the other.
This experiment as part of the workshop explores the dynamics of movement and this causal effect in the exhibitions at the biennale. In one series, the participants are shown moving through the space sensing sound and gravitating towards the perimeter. In contrast in the other series, people are shown to be moving away from the strong sounds and images and gravitating to the central light. In this case the field of relations provoke a different pattern of behavior.
The space acts as a field whereby a singular movement reconfigures the relation between the object and the subject, similar to the Las Meninas painting where the subject engages with the painting. In the 3D exhibition space the same affect is achieved and this is perhaps even stonger.
