Move in a frame - Yacine Sebti
Electronic art appliance
Software, camera, LCD screen
Created in 2008
Move in a frame questions the mirror, but through space and time.
A camera is connected to a computer and the screen is divided in a grid of 4×4 cells. Each of them captures its own movement with his own temporality and memory, producing an asynchronous rendering of the space and the visitors in front of it.
Move in a frame could be seen as a game or as a generative painting where moving intentionally or walking by without paying attention produces the same reaction of the system, being recorded and added to endless loops.
Move in a frame is also a contemporary reference to David Hockney’s composite polaroids considered as time-space captures of a subject.
