Partial view from the installation
H A T T E R' S T I M E
as shown at Museo de Arte Contemporaneo,
Santiago de Chile 2004.
(extrait from the video coming soon)
An installation for video, computer animation and sculpture
(salt, graniteblock or big stone..)
This installation is a metaphor for the irreversability of time,
due to the complex composition of certain elements.
An open "book" (~ 55 x 65 cm), sculpted in light grey granite - property of the artist - (1)
is lying on a wooden plate, which is suspended from the ceiling with thin iron cords,
like a swing.
On the empty pages of the open book,
a video projection of a 3D computer animation
showing letters moving in a continuous interpolation process ("morphing"),
forming occasionally the word MEMOIRE.
Beside this, another video
projection directly on the wall is showing a water pond
suddenly spitting out
stones which come flying right towards the spectator.
After a while, one
realizes that this is a reversed sequence...
Sound: the stones hitting the water and the murmurings of the water, amplified.
(1) Tokyo version: sculpted in fine white salt/ MAC Santiago de Chile version:
an flat stone block
