Philippe Safire’s installations often combine an animation projected onto a sculpture. This approach led the artist to explore the concept of “projection” in psychological terms. The Rorschach test serves as a visual inspiration of this phenomenon. As a starting point, Safire first drew abstract compositions with colored pencils on grid paper, which the artist then animates as a computer film. The symmetrical video is projected onto the sculpture folded in the center and curved along the edges. Its translucent surface intensifies the colors and renders a glowing effect, as the digital sequence assumes different forms. Safire invites the viewer to enter an ambiguously psychological and immersive experience.
