Pascal Dufaux - The Cosmos In Which We Are
Optical table on a tripod, manufactured in stainless steel, chromed plated steel and plexiglass. This motorized rotational filming device moves a surveillance camera through a slow hypocycloidal revolution: a rotation on the periphery of a rotation. When exhibited, video signals captured by the camera are projected on a wall behind the sculpture, creating a videographic mise en abyme of the space and the people around the machine.
