Social sculpture / Installation / Performance.
The opaque projector or epidioscope is a device which displays solid materials by shining a bright lamp onto the object from above.
“rE-VersO” it’s a homemade multiprojector (opaque projector or epidioscope) that ejects 52 images from different angles. What this epidioscope projects it’s the interior of a space made out of grocery cardboard boxes collected from ‘strangers’, ‘art lovers’, friends and other students; it makes it a ‘social sculpture’.
“rE-VersO” is based on principles of optics, physics and natural magic aiming to recall our way of seeing things in reverse; just as our eye does before the brain analysis.
I am exploring ancient visual techniques in order to propose a reflection on our perception of the real world, the precariousness and poverty. The after image of the box it’s a kind of portrait of the world now a days.
The experience of “rE-VersO” it’s guided by a mysterious atmosphere of cardboard and an intense light.
