Phaseshift

Drawing upon ideas of perception and consciousness, the kinetic work Phaseshift (2016) explores the parallels between environments, both digital and physical.

Created specifically for exhibition at Loop Alternative Space in Seoul, Korea, Phaseshift is a suspended two-metre mechanical pendulum activated by an electromagnetic motor to engage a swinging motion. The pendulum’s movement is echoed by a light projection that spills upon the surface of the pendulum and surrounding wall.

Bringing together ideas of time and space, the constant rhythmic pulse of form, the pendulum and projection collide and interact inciting a hypnotic meditative experience for the viewer.
