Possible Polygon [2013]

Mixed-media installation. 5' x 4' x 3'. Elastic cord, video projector, digital video.

Possible Polygon is a mixed media installation consisting of a video of a single animated line projected on a corner that is spanned by a single elastic cord. The two points of the line in the video are animated by two simulated chaotic pendulums, which gives the line a subtle rocking motion. The animation is projected on the string in the corner; on the rare occasion that the line happens to be in a perfectly horizontal position, the string is fully illuminated and the overspill of the light around the string falls on the wall and creates for a brief moment a three-dimensional triangle.
