Maschine zur Projektion eines Blumenmusters – Tina Tonagel

Maschine zur Projektion eines Blumenmusters

Tina Tonagel’s ‘Maschine zur Projektion eines Blumenmusters’ is a mechanical looping creator-destroyer machine system. Utilising modified overhead projectors, emergent floral patterns are printed onto a transparent screen, which then journey to their own annihilation. Just moments after their arrival they are erased at a second mechanical junction by a drop of water combined with a sweep of a brush. The textural aesthetic reminds of us the hand-painted animations by Norman Mclaren. The difference here being that ‘Maschine zur Projektion eines Blumenmusters’ creates an infinite cinematic projection dialogue, which could go on looping forever.
