[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Gisele Trudel — Timepiece

Artist Statement

In this video sculpture, two monitors are modified by using a newly-adapted version of the original Wheatstone Stereoscope (1838). The 2D video screens are extended through an exploration of volume, perspective and movement as components of three-dimensional perception. The content focuses on our understanding of space and the conceptual guidelines which determine it. The representations of “space” and “body” are shown as visual molds of different belief systems. The stereoscopic technique constitutes a formal extension of the content.
