Black Box

Black Box

This square is a composition of 256 laser sculptures photographed with an infrared camera
in an enclosed black box.

It focuses on the trompe-l’oeil effect normally associated with painting techniques. This project plays around the notion of scale size and deceitful aspect of the visual image.

The image consists of 256 single images brought together. This amount is a reference to the 8-bit depth. 8-bit grayscale graphics is a method of storing image information in a computer's memory or in an image file, such that each pixel is represented by one 8-bit byte. The maximum number of grayscales that the human eye can perceive in one image is 256.

The work is printed on the same size as Kazemir Malevich’s Black Square, measuring 80x80 cm.
Please zoom in when looking at the square.
