The Uncertainty Principle
Video projection, brick wall, 75 minutes.
This work consists of a video projection showing the
construction and deconstruction of a grey brick wall. The
video is partially projected on a brick wall of the same size,
in such a way that the projection of the wall fits exactly the
We have two informations, or forms of information (medium),
about this simple brick wall. The material, immobile object,
and a representation of it being build and destroyed.
The observer is placed between objective reality and
subjective interpretation and representation.
The title is a principle in quantum mechanics, discovered by
Werner Heisenberg, describing the limit of the precision in
measuring two different characteristics of a particle. For
example, the more precisely the position of a particle is
determined, the less precisely its momentum can be known.
