Coming People 2011
Group exhibition - S.M.A.K. Ghent
02.12.2011 till 08.01.2012
The video installation responds to the space by omitting architectural elements out of the projections.
The relationship between the viewer, the videos and the environment / surroundings is enhanced by projecting over the entire height of the space. In this way, the installation becomes interactive; the viewer is overwhelmed and disoriented by moving images and has the impression he can step into the projections.
The structure of the building allowed the viewer to perceive the installation, both locally and from a distance. The different distance to the images affected the perception of the installation.
"Because three (or more) different landscapes rotate at different speeds, a (dance) composition of the various landscapes is created. The images are interwoven with each other and with the exhibition space, allowing the viewer to become disoriented."
