As our smartphones present us with images of a more beautiful and desirable life, ‘Still Moving’ reminds us how life can be seen from multiple perspectives.
Through a calming optical illusion revealed only by your smartphone camera, this kinetic installation asks: Do you trust everything you see? The hypnotic animation invites you to observe two realities simultaneously, acting as a reminder to practice objectivity when looking at curated snapshots of life through the filter of technology.
Inspired by 1960s optical art and the psychology of visual interpretation, the artist aims to start a conversation around the importance of being mindful. While many of us struggle to use our devices less, ‘Still Moving’ uses technology to inspire curiosity and question whether what we see is actually what we get.
