Olivier Ratsi, a visual artist on the ANTIVJ label, created an immersive installation that uses perspective to re-work time and space. Onion Skin is displayed on two wall-sized screens positioned at right angles, with a projection and a 5.1 sound broadcast.
The graphical work about the re-composition of time and space is built around a progressive structure. Comprising four parts which last 14 minutes in total, the piece plays on the principle of repetition and scale to create a physical and hypnotic experience that opens doors onto the hidden and untouchable.
The experience is based on a very specific point of view: a precise position from which a new dimension is revealed to the audience by anamorphosis. The simple geometric elements (“peelings”) that seemed to be flat at first suddenly start delimiting a new space.
The illusion of a new dimension slowly appears as the onion skins seem to leave their physical surface behind. You can check out the installation in the video below:
