Bifurcation

Shadow Object 2

A small Y-shaped branch, similar to a divining rod, is suspended from a thread and moves with the air flow and with a small motor. Projected on the wall behind the branch is its shadow, only you can see the entire tree from where the branch came. The branch and the tree shadow are always oriented in the same way. The piece is a mobile, which can be moved by touching it lightly or by blowning upon it. Bifurcation is the second installation in the "Shadow Object" series of works, inspired by Octavio Paz and Bioy Casares, among others, who insisted that absence and presence are not opposites.
