Tarikh Korula: Pin Wheel

Artist Statement:


    Interactive video installation at GLAZ’ART

    Imagine approaching a shoddy, old television set. On the screen you see a close-up of a person’s eye, pixelated and occasionally flickering from bad video resolution. On a brass stand in front of the set, slightly below your shoulders stands a child’s pinwheel. If you blow on the pinwheel the eyeball on the television screen reacts instinctively. Blow softly for instance, and the eyelid squints, blow hard and the eye closes up as if to protect itself from your breath.

    Pinwheel is an exercise in simplicity and minimalism in interaction. The installation gives no clues to its operation.
