In New York City the Muriel Guépin Gallery has just opened a new exhibit featuring art pieces that focus on distorting the viewers perception. This exhibit is called Bright Matter. Using light, computers, and robotics the artists involved in this exhibit are causing people to experience amazing visual illusions.This project is being curated by Joanie Lemercier, an artist who focuses on the relationship between light and dark, and produced by Juliette Bibasse, a digital art producer.
The artwork displayed are by artists who are well-known for their inspiration from human perception. For example, a french duo known as Nonotak is displaying a piece called Masks. It was created by vinyl tape being arranged on transparent plexiglass. When an individual walks by this piece it creates a rippled or "moiré" effect.
Another piece of art is called Origam1. This piece involves a group of paper triangles that move slightly via electronic motors. This movement changes how the triangles are viewed and how the light bounces off of them.
