Hand in hand with the solvere
- the dis-solve
, the pulling apart of the self into its dividualized and digitized pieces - comes the salvare
- the salvation
, the recollection of the self to wholeness by way of its negation. Dissolvation
uses the gallery's floorplan as the basis for mandala-like imagery, onto which the viewer is digitally projected in real time, after a few seconds delay (which is in turn then captured by the same camera to be recursively projected again to an infinite regress.) This allows the viewer to interact with a constantly compiling, multi-layered, digital counterpart of him/herself while each iteration is simultaneously slowly dissolved by the compounding glow of the projection. The coloration of the piece is also site-responsive, ranging from natural colors to deep blues depending on lighting and time of day.
