Mixed Media Installation by Balance & Mild
“Wall, Camera, Projector, Light, Pendulum. Pendulums shadow sweeps across the wall over a sensor. Sensor triggers a light on the wall. Shadow moves, light changes. Camera is filming the light, image of the light itself is posted on top of itself. Image images itself, again and again and again. Memory of the memory of the image lingers on the wall and diminishes towards infinity. Pendulum slows down. Sensor picks up slowing movement. Motor turns on and restarts the pendulum. Memory of the image repeats itself on the wall again and again always with a different variation of its self”
Diminishing Returns is an autonomous installation/study about memory of a movement and light, it does not fit perfectly into any regular cathegory of usual video or installation works. Same time it is present as analog and fysical manifestation and same time it is located in “world of images” as a video work. Diminishing Returns is not a recording. Everything happens now, there and then when being spactated. Surroundings, space, observer itself can affect the result by stepping between the camera and the wall and for a short while be part of the work, until memory of the image vanishes of the wall.
