Projections through Dark and Light
Clara, a 28 cm wired mesh scultpure becomes a living thing in the studio. Her tiny body is projected into a 172 cm center tall figure who could be interacted with – posed with, share glares with, hold hands with. In those moments, even Elena's children interacted with Clara in a warm and fuzzy way – as if they already knew who she is and what she is about. And they caressed the flat wall as if to try feel her essence. Clara in that moment became profound and important, making her way, setting a path, becoming someone both literally and physically.
She became Elena in that instance, and as Elena places her body before the projecting light to interact and connect with Clara too. There are conversations going on – an energy in between.
