Absolute Relative

Exhibited at Sonar+D Barcelona 2016

Our perception is never absolute, but relative.

Recontextualising the thermal grill illusion, discovered by Torsten Thunberg, as an experiential installation establishes awareness for the relativity of our perception.

The rods of the sculpture are slightly warm or cold. The contrast of the alternating temperatures creates a subjective sensation, leading to the perception of the temperature being much more extreme.

A projection of slow and fast moving particles visualises the thermal pattern.
