Descending a Parametric Staircase
2018

This piece is a generative animation showing a descent into a never-ending spiral staircase. From time to time, uncanny virtual naked people can be seen walking down the staircase. The work never repeats the same sequence of characters. “Descending a Parametric Staircase” is a homage to Duchamp’s futurist composite “Nude Descending a Staircase” from 1912, taking its colour palette, and his “Rotoreliefs” from 1935.

Messages "bounce" around from searchlight to searchlight, turning the sky into a giant switchboard.

To make these images, a powerful projector (110,000 ANSI lumens of intensity for images of up to 70 x 70 metres) was placed on a 12-ton truck with a generator.
