Arnaud Lapierre: Ring

“Ring” is an installation which takes into consideration the urban space networking : the rhythm, flow, organization and spatial hierarchy. The installation embodies a visual effect that is to connect all of these interactions through the implementation of an optical effect: the repetition of an cubic mirror to break the perception of the place.
This dynamic installation changes the relationships between individuals and the space they are going through.
“Ring” invits the visitor  to play with the installation and space on two levels:
The very first approach would be more related to experience a change in the urban areas: as a temporal kinetics. The facets of each cube reflect the place and reconstruct a paradigm that breaks the reading of the course. Ring works at this stage as a visual intrusion, an acceleration that changes the perception of the  visited place. This is a spacial rediscovery.
In a second step, the installation proposes to get inside, to see his own image multiplied to infinity, which collides with urban detail, it is now a place outside time and outside spatiality ,in total rupture with the outside principle . The vision is more intimate.
