Site-specific Installation

Since ancient times, DELTΔ, the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet, has been represented by a triangle pointing upwards. Originating from the equivalent letter of the Phoenician alphabet, it is based on a hieroglyph initially representing a door.

DELTΔ, the second stage in the Echolyse project, is a site specific installation, that explores, through a dematerialized door, the possibility of a fictional three-dimensional space.

Making use of the anamorphosis technique, the piece is based on the position of the spectator,  predetermined by the artist, from which the audience will be able to visually reconstitute the geometrical symbol and discover the “pelures” (peelings) emitting from the very center of its gravity.

DELTΔ, quatrième lettre de l'alphabet grec, est représentée depuis les temps les plus anciens par un triangle pointé vers le haut. Tirant son origine de la lettre correspondante de l'alphabet phénicien, elle est basée sur un hiéroglyphe représentant une porte.

L’installation audiovisuelle DELTΔ est un travail sur la perception de l’espace, explorant via une porte dématérialisée – représentée par un symbole géométrique – l’éventualité d’un espace fictif tridimensionnel.

Utilisant la technique de l’anamorphose, la pièce est basée sur une position du spectateur en un point pré-déterminé par l’artiste. Cette position permettra au spectateur de reconstituer visuellement le symbole géométrique et découvrir les Pelures qui rayonnent depuis son centre de gravité.
