ЗОЛОТАЯ СЕРЕДИНА / THE GOLDEN MIDDLE , RUSSIA , 2018
For Artmossphere Moscow 2018, Faith teamed up with South African designer and inventor, Lyall Sprong for their 4th collaborative installation.
ЗОЛОТАЯ СЕРЕДИНА / THE GOLDEN MIDDLE. is an immersive artwork. It explores the notion that technology changes faster than we are able to develop the appropriate cultures that govern its use. Their installation considers the difference between reality and virtual experience. Through playing with the refresh rates of LEDs the image captured on a phone is different to what is seen with the naked eye. In so doing rather than advocating for a hierarchy between real and virtual, their installation merely encourages attention to the difference between the two.
The shape of the work references the geometry of the Mandalora, with an impetus on the individual to contemplate a middle path.
