Photographic prints on tracing paper, test tubes and steel nails / can be fixed directly on the wall or over a white wood board.
For 168bpm (beats per minute) installation artwork, 168 steel nails perforate the wall in order to fix a sequence of test tubes containing fractions of photographic images digitally printed on tracing paper.
The undulations created by the glass tubes along with the nails rhythm indicates a movement already contained on photographed subject.
The tubes, which are expected to be filled with liquid matter also indicate the content of the photographs they host. Even though water wasn't what I photograph here but the light reflected on the sea.
I have photographed the light reflected on the sea, in order to have printed liquid matter placed inside lab tubes.
