Description:
An installation is placed in the exhibition space, which resembles the photographic apparatus used in photo studios for taking identity card photos. The only difference is that there is a table in front of the model, with a monitor on its top. Lying on the table, there are a few A4 size cards with unintelligible geometric patterns. The visitor receives the following instruction: sit down at the table, and show the cards placed on it to the camera. Settling by the table, the visitor will see her/his own mirror image shown by the video camera that replaces the photo camera. When the visitor lifts the cards and shows them to the camera will notice something unusual: in addition to the view given by the video camera, there are virtual three-dimensional objects floating in front of the simple black and white patterns. These react to the movement of the cards as if they were real objects. (Z.Sz-M.)
