Spread out in the dark, hidden by a thick fog and light effects, big black polygons float in space.
A point of view materialized on the ground enables to visually reconstruct the shape of a rectangle. The scenographic device of Shape disturbs the spectator’s perception, who sometimes perceives a solid form, sometimes an exploded form, according to the principle of anamorphosis.
Shape is an in-situ installation that may or may not be accompanied by sound.
