A Spectacular View
2017, digital projection

Projection of consecutive pairs of algorithmically generated green screens and text. Each newly generated green screen is always accompanied by a fragment of text that is randomly picked from a predefined list. The text refers to things that are gone, lost or fictional. Every pair exists only for five seconds until it disappears again forever, after which a new pair is generated.

This work is a collaboration with Zeno Peeters who programmed the algorithm. It was made possible and selected by LUCA School of Arts to be shown at the Light Festival of Ghent 2018.
