Causticum

2012, Installation; CG Animation 720p, 3m 37s Loop, Video Beamer, Dichroic filter, Phosphorescent screen 480 x 269 cm

The exhibition space was virtually recreated in CGI. Within the virtual model the floor was substituted with water and a light source was installed beneath it. A simulation of caustics (a phenomenon of natural focusing of light) is generated on the screen's area where the video, resulting from this simulation, is projected during the show. The video is projected through a filter, which only allows the part of the light spectrum that excites phosphorence through, on a phosphorescent screen. The video projection blends itself with the ephemeral light emanation of the screen, the areas with the highest concentration of simulated light also emating the most.
