mirror – glass (dim: 120 x 80 cm), light projection and reflection

The light work Fractal is part of a series of works dealing with the idea of the ‘transparent body’. Formally the work is based on a radiological image of the brain, the use of light sensitive materials and the integration of non-material phenomena such as light projections and reflections. The diffracted image shows the branching of blood vessels and also, because of the vertical installment, resembles the structure of the pulmonary bronchi. The fractal structure of the corporal organ maps the invisible geometry of the body, while the light dematerializing the image suggests the impermanent and fragile essence of the physical, whether organic or artificial.
