‘Slow-mover’ Installation

This installation is typically paired with a more frenetic visual piece as so to provide some direct antithesis and a strong sense of dichotomy.

The piece serves as a moving canvas, gradually transforming throughout the 7 hour period of exhibition into complete abstraction and eventual removal from its original spiralling form. The piece illustrates how our perception can change through time, without our noticing and how what was once immediately recognisable can become eschewed beyond our recognition.

“I enjoy people watching immensely and find this installation to be analogous to that so peaceful act of observation. How we can watch things slowly move around & still remain the same but somehow looking away and returning your gaze can make the changes, however minute, all the more obvious.”

I feel that this experience is a very relatable one that can be applied to many aspects of the human condition, specifically to our relationships with each other and more importantly, our selves.

Cycle – Marla Singer & Witch – 18/3/17

Explicitly minimal/cyclic visual stimulus for Cycle

In order to convey a cyclic sense of movement, I attached various forms of layered feedback onto a rotating sphere inside another rotating sphere, each spinning at exactly 33.1/3 RPM
