PROJECTION

The sculpture consists of a double-faced mirror that rises vertically, acting somewhat like a stele or a landmark for passers-by walking along the the banks, or for the boats and barges that use the canal.

The idea of the landmark is also to invite onlookers to view the space with a fresh eye. Projection presents a doubled perspective to the viewer, as we see both the image reflected in the mirror as well as the space surrounding the sculpture, thereby placing the viewer in the unusual position in which they can simultaneously see what is facing them and what is behind them. This visual window therefore directly refers to a temporal window, through which the observer may contemplate the future and the past within the same gaze, as an existential clamp in which our very presence in the world is questioned.

In this way, Projection occupies a paradoxical position, being at once a marking of a territory and at
the same time an attempt to absolve oneself from this through the revelation of another dimension.
