Have you ever experienced sitting in a train that appears to move while it is at rest? This phenomenon is called ‘induced movement’: a motionless object seems to move when in fact it is another closer object to move.
The purpose of this project is to put motion in close relation to space. A room with projection mapping offers a variety of visual stimuli, different movements, and velocities. By interfering with the rhythm of movement and the perception of it, this installation is meant to arouse the sensation of motion in a stationary environment. We want to stimulate the feeling of perceptive distortion created when speed is only visually detected but not physically experienced.
Another way to experience movement is through a book, not written with letters but through cutouts. A series of flipbooks, each telling a physical narrative at 3 different speeds.
