POSSESSED OBJECTS

Concept

Current technology is often presented and accepted as magical. The understanding of tools and and services is such that they hold unequal power over the people who cannot picture the technological landscape and cannot, therefore, act within a decisive, informed manner.

To counter the misbeliefs, a process of identification, visualisation is undertaken: A summoning of the mechanical ghosts through possessed objects.

The work is a critical questioning of the technopolitical structures in place while proposing future imaginings. Two sculptures are made for the user two interact with, "identity possessors" among which one act as a weapon and the other as shelter. Both work with the same mechanism; there's a handle which helps rotate a layer of perforated metal sheet which creates a Moire effect with the static second perforated metal layer below. The high powered led lights embedded inside the sculptures reflects the optical illusion on the walls of the dark room where the work is presented, creating an immersive feeling of "attack" in the room as such illusion plays with the spatial perception of the user.
