Construction for Erosion/ 30° Blank Bubble

Installation: Construction for Erosion/ 30° Blank Bubble

Location: Schellens, Eindhoven, Netherlands

Bart Prinsen is fascinated by the tension between chaos and the tendency of human beings to create order. In the old textile factory Schellens, he presents two works. Construction for Erosion consists of a silo from which fine sand runs through a narrow slit. The sand forms a thin curtain on which a light stripe is projected. 30° Blank Bubble is formed by a projection of a bubble on a half transparent screen. The projector consists of a small reservoir of oil in which slowly a bubble arises.

The images in both works seem to be endlessly repeating themselves but they’re never exactly the same. With this hypnotic flow of images Prinsen tries to freeze the mind completely. Because of their organic and irregular movements the forms cannot be reduced to a clear structure and you can only watch mesmerized.
