CONSTELLATION 1 | projection machine and archive | 2017

Constellation 1 is the first prototype for a project that aims to build an archive by using 16mm film and found stones to create portraits of friends and companions.

Using a ring-shaped projection machine, a film circles its physical counterpart, a found stone placed in the center of the machine. The film passes through four projectors, which are aligned with the four sides of the stone. There, all the projections are brought together, creating the illusion of a flickering human head slowly turning on the surface of the stone.
