Concept

A still life of obsolete technologies virtually re-animated; they are brought back to life through the combination of augmented reality with antique magic tricks. As in other works of the series, the animated composition is approached with a musical sense of rhythm and balance; both music and light, as abstract artforms, are best appreciated over time. 

In parallel to the combination of the physical and virtual scenographies, the work suggests a meeting of past and future in the constantly mutating instant.  Other nods to history include iconography which reminds of the Dutch and Flemish Vanitas, still life paintings from 16th & 17th centuries, aimed at capturing the passage of ephemeral elements, such as time and light.
