Serkis, reaction
rear-view mirror, steel, site-specific video (continuous loop)

Serkis, reaction is part of a series of site-specific video works that react with their surroundings. In this version, a wall-mounted car rear-view mirror containing a video monitor reflects a sculpture as part of a group exhibition. An excerpt of an actor performing facial expressions that are being recorded for motion capture for a computer-generated King Kong cut intermittently between the reflection of Brenda Templaar’s architectural model of the planned Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette building. The two components create latent features within their physical context: the virtual creature and the proposed tower.
