Project Description

Framing Distance when experienced from a distance the viewer sees glimpses of the video content. Moving closer and within the mesh-like patterned panels, the viewer has a more fragmented spatial experience.

Details

In Framing Distance, shadows created by the video projection on the three mesh-like patterned screens seek to create a fragmented spatial experience for the viewer. As the light of the video projection of found news footage falls on the three cut-out patterned panels, the distance between the screens and the negative and positive space of the cut-out screen distorts the video projection. The distortion is such, that within the space, the viewer only experiences this optical disorientation of shifting forms, light, and shadows
