2007, video-installation, 2’ 32’’, color and b/w, mute
The video Perpetuum mobile is a video-installation integrated within a determined architectural space. The movement of a basketball, reproduced in a scale 1:1, is projected. Due to its fixed size, the projection area is suggested by the room itself. In between pillars, walls or other accessories, as doors, wardrobes, the ball moves confined by them.
Its movement, related to the well-known size of a basketball as object, gives the visitor a sort of abstract ruler, capable of measuring the space. Bouncing around the projection area, the basketball perpetually loses and regains color oscillating between a colored presence and a black and white remembrance. The object’s own shadow is virtually presented and a fourth dimension is opened within the same room.
