SeeN

SeeN 1, video, loop, 2020

A video is synchronized with a shimmering light projected into space. Accompanied by a sculpture, they form the installation SeeN. A human eye and a mechanical eye look at each other. The project creates a co-dependency between the eye that does not fixate and the eye that never blinks. The first uses light to see, the second to watch. Two videos synchronized and projected in space visually transcribe this dialogue, this confrontation. The twitching of the eyes caused by a brief flash of dazzling lightning is filmed and transformed into a sparkling light. The tensions then act as a light signal in space. The flicker, projected on a wall. This project revolves around the fastest movement of our body: the blinking of the eyes. In a fraction of a second, it protects our eyes and blocks the passage of light. Yet here, he himself becomes a generator of light. This light is projected onto a wall drawing of a spell which it transforms and finishes.
