Palimpsesto

Video Photo Info

3400 dead lightbulbs, webcams, computer, projector.

Dimensions: 280 x 500 cm.

3,400 dead light bulbs, suspended from the ceiling with nylon string, form a screen. A video-projector casts small spots of light on the screen. These spots randomly move across the surface, causing the light bulbs to seem to light up again. When the public gets close to the screen, the spots of light converge to form a larger undulating blob. Gradually the spectator realizes that the light blob follows the movement.
