Laterna Magica

Laterna Magica  is an installation work dedicated to concept of magic lantern and the illusion it creates. My work is an abstract interpretation of the technology creating images. The open shapes are abstract representation of the concept of projection. The structure includes the essential elements to make projection: set of lenses, light and image on a slide. In this installation, the two lanterns  are positioned against each other separated by set of translucent screens. The image of two figures reaching out with their hand is projected from each lantern  through lenses on the screens. The lenses and screen magnify and filters the images, and when the two images finally reach the center screen they are bearly visible. Laterna magica is expression of the imaginative space created by the illusive images.
