Version 2 of “Teetering on the Void” places the body into the original Klein background of a quiet street in Paris. The background has been altered in “Teetering on the Void” as the sun sets, stars replace the stark overcast sky as the wind gently rustles through the leaves. The passer-by, a casual cyclist, is now in motion and occasionally makes an appearance cycling through the frame. After a time, the sun rises again, but the artist continues to teeter on the windows ledge. The passage of time within the loop occurs in a fraction of our own, yet the sensation for the viewer is that it is somehow expanded, as this physical mantra of hesitation is seemingly infinite. The push/pull sensation of the these two realms, the actual compression of time and the psychological expansion of time, are punctuated by the occasional ‘doubling’ of the artist’s body. Version 2 is
projected as a portrait, rather than landscape by turning the projector on its side. It should be projected slightly larger than actual size (to scale) and the bottom edge of the frame touches the ground level.
