This piece occupies a space between the still and moving image. Projections are reflected off rotating mirrored surfaces and diffused across a wall surface, transforming each image into a slowly orbiting field of its constituent parts.

This project references the organization of “bottom-up” systems; the original still image becomes the seed for the generation of a pattern-field. Timers create phase relationships and a visual feedback loop locates the original images as details in the larger context of the piece.
