zerozones


4 video projectors – 4 amp. speakers – 27 m of mirrors – 49 m2 exhibition space – infra red sensors

ZEROZONES is an interactive video installation  creating an immersible environment which breaks down the concepts of the euclidean space. The stretched shape of the installation was projected as a hexagonal corridor. Black curtains close the entrance and the exit and mirror walls define the space. White sand covers the floor, where 100 handmade ceramic sculptures  in form of eggs are placed, representing the beginning of life and the advent of digital times. Data-banked images are projected on four screens. The images come from two projectors aimed to the mirror walls and two more others on the white sand.

There are four sensors placed in between these eggs sculptures connected to the computer. When the sensors detect the public movement, the PC abruptly changes the ocean looping image to urban short videos, creating a non-linear horizon of events.
