Curve Gallery proposal by @RCAIED student Kelly Spanou

Curve Gallery concept by @RCAIED from RCA IED on Vimeo.

The world is inseparable from the subject, but from a subject which is nothing but a project of the world, and the subject is inseparable from the world, but from a world which the subject itself projects.
— Maurice Marleau Ponty

12curveThe shadow here is approached as a mode of spatial presence and absence at the same time. The viewers, by looking their distorted black silhouettes projected, looking their physical absence in the space, as the concept of the shadow can be approached as a negative mode, but at the same time through their shadows they are looking the existence of their absence. So, the absence of their bodies is not necessarily something negative but also something present.

11curveThe projection of the shadows, is changing the experience of the visitor in the Curve and create a different perception of the morphology of the space. Here, the final shape of the space, is emerging through the participation of the bodies. The space is fluid and liquid and exists because of the subjects that exist there and activate it.

10curveInside the Curve, the projected shadows create an interplay between the light and the dark, the visible and the invisible. Those projected geometrical relations establish the space as an object of vision and imagination and change the perception of the existing space for every visitor by creating an immersive experience.
