Phases is the new installation I have been working on during the time I spend at SUMU space. For now I see this installation as the prototype of a system that will expend. I have been working on site at SUMU space, designing electronic circuits, using small objects, scale human figures and lights to produce series of shadows projections. I have been experimenting with the electronic circuits, physical parameters and time — the relative spaces between objects, lights and walls, the durations during which each light is on or off, the order in which they light up — which are taking part in an organized system creating live animated images sequences.
