S.P.E.C.T.R.U.M.

 

Media: 162 35mm slides, 2 synched slide projectors with dust covers, dissolve unit and projector stand. Looping, duration approximately 20 minutes. Dimensions variable, 2014.

Description: Combining analogue technology with digitally prepared slides, S.P.E.C.T.R.U.M. is an expanded cinema installation exploring optical phenomena, color, perception and duration.

A slide filled with a solid color is projected out of focus. With the aid of a dissolve unit, the color projected on the wall gradually cycles through the spectrum of visible light. The complete cycle lasts approximately 15-20 minutes before seamlessly beginning again.
