Perceptible 8
_ Metal, Fabric, Light Bulbs, Motion Sensors
Variable Dimensions
Paris, June 2005

Perceptible 8 was built to apply the new discoveries of the system connecting the lamps to the sensors - to the inner complexity of shapes belonging to the Sun Clock sculpture. Now rebuilt with the same proportions as the model, but in a larger scale. But, instead of relying on the sun to facet its perception a group of lamps was connected to various of its pillars, each of them was connected to sensor and they all were spread around the sculpture reaching different corners of the galleries.

This time the wires were apparent, exposing the mechanisms that were prepared to respond to the spectators crossing of the space. Perceptible 8 is an experiment on the reversion of the expectations of the object been passive through the spectator’s observation, in this case the object perceives the passing observer potentially even before it’s noticed. This work was built to be shown at the “Year of Brazil in France”, in Paris on June of 2006.
