Paolo Monti, Flottage~Elastic Mirror, 1996

Steel, mercury, infra-red system (CIBA chrome)

video: 2" 25'

“A wave breaks the state of stillness of a reflected image decomposing it into a

Sequential images dissolve and recompose within a mirror of mercury, the only element
detectable by infra-red capable of returning a virtual reflected image
with the same chromaticity as the real one.
