Overpass

photograph installation

Functioning under the law of perspective, the installation presents a photo split into 15 pieces of various sizes and shapes and placed in show space. While audience walks through these fragmented photos installed at different heights and angles, s/he is only able to capture patches of the whole image. Standing behind a peephole designated by artist on a podium, however, one finds all parts are visually recomposed into a single complete piece.

First displayed in 2008 Overpass, Canvas International Art, Amsterdam, the Netherlands (2008).
