SPECULAR SERIES | FOCAL POINT
Presented at : BAM Festival | Liège - October 2017
About the project:
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. A custom sound instrument is digitally recreated for all the sculptures and the visual composition of the artwork consists of a repeated generative structure, thus resulting in several similar yet non-identical algorithmic audio-visual « loops ».
The piece wants to represent the constant search for perfection; a quest that is here simultaneously emphasized and disrupted by the subtle differences seeping through the repetition of each sequence. Through this process, the seemingly strict uniform nature of the composition is infused back with a dynamic sense of reality.
The main component of the installation is a semi-parabolic mirror.
The projected light converge in a single point, called focus, set at the center of the shape.
The sculpture is set slightly inclined to face the visitor, creating the illusion of a continuous light projection through the mirror.
