Periferace / Peripheration
Peripheration is a perception disorder causing percepted impulses to shift to a periphery of our interest. It is caused by large amounts of sensations, informations and buzz surrounding us. Human attention becomes valued commodity, that requires to be fought for, attacked at and gained constantly.
Noone takes notice of anyone or anything, while doing other things, writting emails during a meeting, calling in a tram, texting in a train, watching tv during family lunch. Does our perspective widen? We register new informations, but can‘t give them the needed attention. Then we can feel things, in a peripheral sight, that might not exist at all. The more we see and know, the more impulses for peripheration we have, it works similarly as subconciousness or dreams.
I try to use these ruptures of attention for my Peripheration project – animation for peripheral vision. Images that emerge in peripheral sight, while not paying attention, during uneventful activity, walking the street, riding a bike, in a tram, in a bus, while doing nothing, staring infront of us, but sometimes seeing things sideways. Simple animation forms by phasing image and dividing it, like seeing a hare running through the lines of vineyard while driving a car. It creates a glimpse of a movement, the image rises up and disapperes, a stain on a wall becomes a figure or a face. Everything is visible only by a walkover, the passerby should only apprehend a glimpse, not being sure seeing anything at all.
