Loupehole August 2009

In collaboration with Liz Ainslie. Loupehole is a device to be carried around the gallery and placed atop objects in the room.  Each object causes different, specific drawings to be revealed on the screen of the device.   A sensor produces three numbers which pertain to surface below. Each drawing also corresponds to three numbers, describing subtle variations in the evolution of lines and shapes. 

The project aims to affect the way that users imagine the space of the gallery. The artwork relates to everything in the space while simultaneously taking the form of a small unobtrusive instrument. The device, which resembles something used for viewing objects more closely, actually assigns a new value to the object beneath it. In the viewer's mind, both the objects and the drawings are inevitably affected by a perceived relationship to each other.
