“The Limits of Perception and the Rectangular Frame 1” is a video installation originating from a performance work with performers Caroline Koss and R.Lyon “playing” windows live with a mechanical apparatus. The critical feature in the installation is the way in which the varying light levels interact with the auto gain exposure on the camera recording. The constant re-evaluation of the level of noise and resolution by the camera acts as both an artefact of the performance process and as a kind of aesthetic collaboration with the equipment, which is also making “decisions.” “Limits 1” is a composition for iPhone automatic exposure unit, mechanical window blinds and remote mechanical triggers.
