Nothing Else Visible



















2008



One part of a dyad of video and installation works, this installation is adapted from a scene from an Alain Robbe-Grillet novel. Every minute, a single glistening pearl is released from a hidden mechanism, dropping to the centre of a circular black glass mirror, meeting its own image double with a resonant punctum of sound.

 

Over the duration of the work’s exhibition, 10,000 pearls accumulate; as more and more pearls descend, they move around the space as they collide with the walls and each other, providing a constantly shifting terrain of movement, accretion, and sound.
