Basketball (multilayer)
2011
Mixed media
Dimensions variable


The installation Basektball (multilayer) works in two ways: as a sculpture and as an image.
Observed from a specific position the individual parts join together to show a basketball lying
in a corner of the exhibition space. Simulating the mechanics of a camera the work uses layering,
perspective and framing as tools to create an image. Informed by photography this piece adds
another loop to the process of translation: from the transformation of three-dimensional realitiy
into a two-dimensoinal image back into three-dimensional space.
