Kinetisches Objekt (TNR-A)

Referencing ideas expressed by John Berger in Ways of Seeing, this kinetic object deals with the philosophical repercussions of technical reproduction at the example of spacial typography. It allows rapprochement between subject and object, inviting interaction in both directions: the perception is extended by an object in space and the perception expands the object. The result is a connecting pull, forcing the viewer into an intimate choreography. Every movement in front of the object creates a new configuration, which, at the slightest movement, changes yet again producing openings, closures and overlays. Here, the letter A is set in Times New Roman (Regular) plotted over a 15 by 15 grid. Pixels were grouped according to their gray values, then divided into five levels and added up staggered from front to back.
