A single, moving image is projected as a stereoscopic illusion together with pulsing light onto one screen.
The viewer sees algorithmically generated systems of semi-opaque particles, which might be described through qualities such as consistency, current, density and liquidity. Embedded within and only occasionally visible are the faint traces of a body in extreme slow motion, as if noise-particles have infested and deteriorated the image. The 3D information of the body-movement is faithfully recreated within the projected 3D space. But the surface of the body dissolves as a result of noise-colonization and liquefying movement techniques.Pulsed light in drifting intensities further dissolves the surface of the projection screen, but not as a 3D-illusion. Emitting pure light onto the screen in sequenced amplitudes results in ambiguous perception, an uncertainty between the illusion of the projection and awareness of the surface as an object. The original image of the body may occur in miniature fractions of time between pulses. The encounter intended is not an invitation (to experience another world) but denial (in front of an eventually sealed surface). What is looked at is a projection. The projector is the viewer.
