throwing an eye on #3 (2017-2019)

projection / installation

Throwing An Eye On #3 uses the eye as representation of the complex act of visual perception, hereby creating its own language-space between vision and blindness. The basis of this project is a short scientific text about the act of seeing. These 63 words, 4 dots and 1 comma are each converted into projections in Braille. During the night all 68 signs are projected onto urban structures, large and small objects, as well as human bodies – the resulting amalgams of surface and projected Braille are then beeing photographed. ◊

◊ THE SUBSEQUENT COMPOSITION OF THE IMAGES GIVES RISE TO AN EYE THAT REPRESENTS THE TRANSFORMING POWER OF PERCEPTION: ON THE ONE HAND, THE EYE APPEARS IN A SHAPE OF ITS OWN, DEPENDING ON THE SHAPE AND COLOR OF THE ILLUMINATED SURFACES. ON THE OTHER HAND IT GIVES A NEW FORM TO THE SPACES IT ILLUMINATES. AN EYE IS BEEN THROWN ONTO REALITY AND ARBITRARILY CHANGES IT.

these four eyes presented were created:

#1 In a barn in Kuhstedt/Bremen (2019)

#2 In the sardinian capital Cagliari (2018)

#3 In the sardinian town Donori (2017)
