Folded Space is a project by MSW that interacts with perception of Torre Pompéia building in São Paulo/Brasil. It uses video projection composed of geometrical shapes which, as they move and re-shape, transform the building onto which they are projected.
The video installation “folded space” uses the tension-filled constellation of massive parts of the building and bridge arrangements for a temporarily fresh interpretation.
The projected video consists of abstract two-dimensional structures, which arrange themselves in spacial constellations over a choreography of about 12 minutes. Change of motifs and perspective are performed and thus shifting spatiality over time. The video creates a new layer on the building, which is “floating” over the surface and is “fractured” at its edges. The video is “folded”: the coherent pictorial space is questioned. The installation thus obtains an eventful quality, which allows – dependent on the viewing angle and point in time – spontaneous and unexpected spacial constellations.

The conclusiveness of the projected light spaces, which originate from a computer simulation, are “broke open” and reinterpreted. “folded space” is created as an experiment and pursues the question in how far architectural forms still exists and communicate their urban relevance in a perception that is increasingly affected by media-based events.
