still life working prototype

STILL LIFE 2003 / In collaboration with Stijn Ossevoort & Natasha Chetiyawardana

A response to visible and non-visible space, Still Life is a series of canvases that responds to stimuli in its immediate environment. As you pass by the screens, lights appear, following your movement. The behaviour of the flickering lights behind the canvas reflect nearby activity; for instance, a mobile telephone will make the lights frenetic as they reflect the electromagnetic energy and your presence. The multiple canvases used in Still Life allow the light to jump from screen to screen. This project was born out of a fascination with electromagnetic space and how we relate to it.
