Teetering on the Void (Version 1)

Referencing the striking Yves Klein photograph, "Teetering on the Void" is the hesitation at the decisive moment which separates danger and safety, risk and the known. Unlike Klein’s resolute grand gesture, there is a self-aware apprehension, displaying the awkwardness of indecision. Version 1 of “Teetering on the Void” exists as an installation specifically created to be adaptable within an urban landscape. The rectangular frame of the projection is obscured by spun glass placed near the lens of the projector, creating the illusion that the illuminated body exists without a video frame. The image of the teetering body intended to be placed at the edge of a building, window ledge or any surface that creates the illusion of precariousness, in which the projected body could fall onto the street below.
