Untitled (title to be defined) is a site sensitive video installation that is composed of two interconnected projections that are integrated/connected into the exhibition space. These projections complement the physical space that surrounds the viewer creating a series of perceptual paradoxes. Two spaces, physical and virtual, real and fictional, are created by these projections, with the intention of modifying the perception of the space surrounding the viewers, and redefining it.
The projection will smoothly transition to different states, modifying in all of them the viewer's perception of the space that surrounds him/her. What is initially perceived as a projection of the light casted through a window, over the floor will move to the virtual space of the wall that will be "given" a non existing depth, thus creating a hybrid space integrated by the physical space that surrounds it. Different spatial transformations of this setup will trigger changes in the perceived space for the viewers.
The mutability of our sense of perception is directly addressed by the spatial evolution of the projected space. The space created by this process, will be a hybrid space, where the digital projection is overlaid into the physical space, with the intention to achieve a believable relation between both spaces. Thus allowing the viewer to renegotiate his/her surroundings as the piece configuration evolves.
Light will be the element used to blur the boundaries between the two spaces (real and fictional) and interconnect them. The window signifies the threshold between them, between the simulacrum space imagined outside the window, and the real space where the viewer stands. Through the framework presented, the project aims to question the relativity of perception and how it informs the apprehension of our surroundings.
