Virtual Object  (it takes a minute to load)

‘virtual object’

This piece is presented as a video projection on the wall of the container.  As you enter you see the still image of a rock suspended on the wall, as you move closer, or to the side, the rock begins to  revolve and rotate, tracking and translating your movements into equal and opposite movements, in the manner of a reflection in a mirror. No longer the objective specimen it returns the gaze of the viewer. The specimen of rock is a piece of gold ore found on a spaghetti western location in southern Spain. The installation is created using a ‘global portrait’ (a photo from every angle) of the rock, put onto the computer and combined with  motion-sensing software written for me by the technical department of The Banff Centre, Canada.
