kinema- : motion (from gr. kínêma)
-tope : place (from gr. topos)
The Kinematope series are contextual installations that respond to specific locations. They re-structure space around the experience of time and use ephemeral and intangible materials, projected light and sound, to set the space in motion.
The Kinematopes are spatial films, cinematic experiences that omit the mediation of the camera. These works transport the observer into a different layer of time while maintaining the real, physical bonds of the body with its environment.
The title of these series is also a little homage to the inspiring and pioneering work of Iannis Xenakis and his Polytopes.
