MEETING POINT LIGHT
24 February 2005 - 13 March 2005
Replaced categories, a flawed stereotype and lack of strict schematics pierce the space of the “Light” installation. Contrasting and mobile associations depict the new material shapes whose remote and subdued clarity is expressed in a new centre: the spectator is involuntarily turned into the moving force of the whole project. With the aid of a photo cell the presence of the spectator instantly makes each element alive, giving to it his/her own rhythm. Penetrating through the dimensions of time, the spectator is the one to add intensity that varies from moderately calm to overtly dynamical. The colours are warm and energetic. They are born from the darkness in the inalterable playful hue of the surprise.

MEETING POINT Kosta Tonev. The Full Image
26 November 2004 - 19 December 2004
“The full picture” project could be defined as a study of the ways through which visual perception overcomes the fragmentariness of image. This too general definition in fact refers to a series of ambiguous images created to lure the vision of an abstract plane between the fragment, active on its own and the whole picture. At the same time, they form a series of impossible and absurd situations.
