Clock-work

In this show, Attila Csörgő exhibits works that deal with some of his main topics: the poetic investigation on the transformation of geometrical forms through projections and the relation between time and space to capture and visualize the abstract notion of infinite.

In this show, Attila Csörgő exhibits works that deal with some of his main topics: the poetic investigation on the transformation of geometrical forms through projections and the relation between time and space to capture and visualize the abstract notion of infinite.

In his kinetic-light construction entitled Clockwork, Csörgő attempts to visualize the sense of infinity through the conversion between the spatial dimensions using light and shadows and combining the projection with the motion of a clock hand. The symbol of the infinite, called referrd to as “lemniscate” by scholars, the shape of a horizontal 8 is drawn by the shadow of the clock hand. Instead of the round shape of the dial, where one can gain exact information, the shadow of the three-dimensional object represents the endless flow of time.

Dial is a wall installation using light and mirror and a geometrically distorted dial which casts the shadow in the form of the sign of infinity in a radiating circle on the floor. The process of transformation from three dimensional to projected two-dimensional image makes visible the ambiguous nature of our perception.
