Four site-specific interventions. Videoprojection on architecture. Artefact festival, STUK Kunstencentrum. Leuven, BE. 2013

‘Architecture is judged by eyes that see, by the head that turns, and the legs that walk. Architecture is not a synchronic phenomenon but a successive one, made up of pictures adding themselves one to the other, following each other in time and space, like music.’

Le Corbusier. Modulor I.

Created by Pablo Valbuena, Time Tilings are four site-specific interventions created for Artefact festival, STUK Kunstencentrum. Leuven, BE in 2013. Like in most of his projects, time tilings is about time, space and perception. He explores the overlap of the physical and the virtual, the generation of mental spaces by the observer, the dissolution of the boundaries between real and perceived, the links between space and time and the use of light as prime matter.

Time Tilings includes projection mapping onto existing surfaces that are physical patterns in themselves. The projections add a new dimension of time where the projected geometries are carefully and precisely mapped over the physical ones. The installation is site-specific each time, formulated as a direct response to the perceptual qualities, physical conditions and surrounding influences of a certain location or space.

Pablo is a visual artist with an architectural background. Born in Spain and currently based in the south of France (Toulouse), his work has been presented internationally in public and private institutions, biennials and galleries as exhibitions and site-specific commissions. He has developed large-scale interventions in the public space in locations across Europe and America.

‘time tilings’, the video projection intervention by spanish visual artist pablo valbuena re-appropriates architectural surfaces with CGI mapping onto existing patterns in space. developed for the artefact festival in belgium, each of the four site-specific projections add a new dimension of time with kinetic geometry made from light. the installation acts as a direct response to the perceptual qualities, physical conditions and surrounding influences of a certain location. to see the work in motion, see the video below. ‘architecture is judged by eyes that see, by the head that turns, and the legs that walk. architecture is not a synchronic phenomenon but a successive one, made up of pictures adding themselves one to the other, following each other in time and space, like music.’ – le corbusier. modulor I.
