In this installation/participatory performance, the image interacts with the viewer’s movements. By entering the room, a person “startles” the peace and emptiness of the space by filling it with action. He brings reality and its reflection “to life” and turns “nothing” into “something”. As the viewer moves, the space fills with fluorescent flying white images-birds — with the troubled movement of black and white that, ultimately, “pulverizes” into the “white noise”. The only important thing here is the light that, forcing its way through the darkness, assumes the shape of soaring birds, fills the space with itself, and disappears when the viewer leaves. The beholder is gone – the light is gone – the shadow is gone – the world is gone.
