Case 11 - Flag of Convenience

2014, Beamer, CG video 1080p, 5m 20s loop, Edition of 3 + 1 EA + 1 CE

By means of computer graphics simulations the work explores the shapes generated by a flag 
with dynamic refractive properties. Light phenomena of refraction are observed in relationship 
with the mechanical folding of textiles. This transparent drapery metamorphoses into water, plastic, diamond and others non-existent clear materials in a continuous flow and is projected into the exhibition space as a ghostly light effect. This « case study » is part of the project « Cave Caustics ».
