Electroboutique presents new installation "Visual Uncertainty" at the science art exhibition "Quantum Entanglement" organized by Laboratoria Art-and-Science Space together with FutureEverything festival.
The project is based on a unique visual technology developed by Electroboutique. With this technology, we add one more visual “layer” to a gallery space - the layer that can only be seen through our special optical filter.
Two custom video projectors lit two opposite walls. “Magic glass” is placed vertically between the walls. The walls display “invisible” videos coming from the projectors. For a bare eye they appear just as white rectangles that highlight the walls. But, if a viewer looks at the projections through our filter – she will see colourful meditative videos instead. People and objects behind the frame appear in front of these animated projections. In this work we wanted to play around with visual perception and bring back the notion of “magic” back in art.
Viewers not only become part of the work, moreover, they can never see the second layer of reality they appear in for the others. Also, with this work we wanted to visualize the concept of “uncertainty”, where a subject can be present in two different spaces simultaneously – visual or mental one.
