interactive and contemplative installation

Sphere is an interactive installation in which a sparkling sphere seems to float in the darkness of space. Optical sensors slowly circle around the object, scanning and surveilling their surroundings like radar and projecting it, as a fading representation of space and time, onto the phosphorescing surface of the sphere. In an apparitional way, the viewer is represented on the round object. Simultaneously, the changing dimensionality of Sphere is visible : through optical distortion and compression, its surface shows not only spatial dimensions but also the factor of time – and invites the visitors to think about existence on the surface of a sphere. 

Project presented with the support of the Institut français, the Metropole and the City of Lyon.
