An experiment in the interaction between projected light and cast shadows within a space, con•stant looks into how we perceive things to be real and how strong or fickle this perception is. Harking at Plato's Parable of the Cave, the installation layers light infiltrating the space from the passing traffic with a projected video that mimics the beams illuminating the space from outside.
The resulting relationship between the real and the artificial causes a surreal sense of uncertainty as our brains try to decipher between the two realms. This piece questions what is real and what is not, and aims to be playful and intriguing as opposed to maddening or frustrating.
