A few snaps of a current exhibition in Copenhagen during set-up. The gallery is the front room of an architecture practice – Leth and Gori in Vesterbro – Absalonsgade 21B, 1658 Copenhagen V. It is on until April the 10th. It is the first of a series of exhibitions set up by Entreentre who will also publish a series of booklets on the work. Entreentre’s website will go online on April the 10th.

These were taken just as we installed the instruments – I will post some others of the thing completed when I get them.

Instrument Nine in Progress

Instrument Nine in Progress

I have not posted any new work for a while, so here is Instrument Nine in progress. It is a development of Instrument Six, projecting paradoxical shadows that float in mid air. A few more complications in this one and using different technologies. 

I will post some more revealing (and better..) pictures if it works. Quite a lot more to do to get it to work.

I am back working on the paradoxical shadows. Instrument Six (below) proved that I could make a floating shadow (hovering in mid air and detached from the surface that it should by rights land upon), both photographically and as a direct experience. For the latter, the candles worked very beautifully but require a very dark space to work in and have practical limitations, so I am making new instruments with electric light bulbs instead. The new instruments will test a host of possibilities raised by Instrument Six.

Yesterday I posted a stereoscopic picture of the floating shadow created by Instrument six (which can by definition only be seen to hover stereoscopically). The view is of quite a subtle lift from the surface and the registration lines on the folding picture plane behind help you sense the parallax. Due the subtle lift some people have difficulty in seeing the float, so here is a stereoscopic view of the shadow registered on the screen (in its normal position before Instrument Six lifts it into the space between the shadow caster and the screen). Also a picture of Instrument Six for anyone who is new to this blog.

After viewing this image in stereo, it might be worth returning to the previous post to see the difference.
