Panagiotis Vorrias

« of 3 »

As the passer-by approaches the site of the installation, a video projection appears in front of him, on the inner wall of an uncovered space. It is a human figure which, holding a large reflective glass, sends bright solar signals to the viewer. He seeks a few moments of attention, he tries to become a small part of the daily life of the passer-by, as he, as a receiver, is confronted with the solar signals in the paradox of the night. A note on the regulatory speed at which public space moves, a message of urgent need for meaningful contact and redefining the terms of communication.
