_ Metal, Fabric, Light Bulbs, Movement Sensors
20 x 8 x 8'
Rio de Janeiro, July 2007
Perceptible 13 used the same structure as Perceptible 7 by this time applied to a space that had a much larger scale, the monumental room at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio; right after the work was acquired by Brazil’s most important art collector – Gilberto Chateaubriand. This time the corridor was connected to a corner of the modernist building, done by Afonso Reidy, right next to the glass façade, which, thanks to a mirroring effect, duplicated the view of the lights in the installation, and created a even more complex spatial sensation.
Once again the sensor was turned into the inside space of the corridor and its surroundings as well, and captured the spectator’s transit in the room to produce a variety of color combinations, this time between red and blue.
The installation was shown in the exhibition “Novas Aquisições” at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio, in 2007, and marked Gustavo Prado’s work entrance to Brazil’s most important art collection by the age of 26.
