Absence is a perception-based installation. It is a space to feel, a space that brings one into a certain mental state. By playing with the perception thresholds, the purpose was to put the spectator in a state of introspection, meditation, to make him experience absence and void, the loss of reference points.
The shape and materials of the room blur our vision. We cannot distinguish anymore neither the close from the distant, nor the boundaries of the surrounding space. The passing from one state to another is achieved by a work on the matity of sound, the frequencies, the quality of light, either soft, bitter, sharp or diffuse. The sound comes from six spacialised sources. The loop lasts 4 minutes. Dynamic light is partly hand-controlled.
