Concept:

 

If an object’s different attributes occur simultaneously in different places, can they still define the object?

The installation emphasizes this “spatio-temporal coincidence” making the observer consider the conditions of our conscious recognition. The installation consisted of fragmentary shapes in different perspective planes that, when seen from specific positions, joined to create words that formed philosophical and artistic arguments on perception. The spectator would decipher each message as he or she looked for key perspective views. However, what lay before him were not letters or words, but rather shapes that, when seen from a specific point of view, aligned in a way the viewer could attach particular meaning to the collective ensemble.
