The idea of the interaction of the three elements - the geometry, light and movement - was evolving in the beginning of my MA Interior and Spatial design course at Chelsea College of Arts. For the first Crits exhibition of the course I created an interactive installation to visualise it.
Geometry Light Movement invites the visitor to come into a dark space with a source of light hanging in the centre of the room and illuminating a modular object, consisting of fifteen identical geometrical elements, suspended from above and aligned at a height of an average human eye-level. The visitor then takes a specific position and puts the source of light into motion to behold the visual motion of the geometry of the objects. The sequence of the static objects start to be a moving image, changing its appearance and creating a feeling of movement rather than being merely illuminated by a moving source of light.
Analysis of the form of this installation and the visual experience it provided to the viewer made it clear that the sequence of similar objects (i.e. images or screens), with the element of the movement applied to them spatially, resulted in blurring out the boundaries where the image begins and ends. Moreover, the visual presence of the geometry of the objects expanded from the two-dimensional to the three-dimensional, as if there were many aligned screens in the room playing a looped video.
