Juliana Borinski (br/de)
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)

Installation, 2008

A few drops of a crystalline solution are placed on an empty slide in a customised projector. The following crystallisation process and all movement induced by it are projected on a screen. Each slide is replaced after stabilisation of the 'image'. As a cinematic abstraction, LCD displays, literally, a Liquid Crystal Display and refers to contemplation and original magic of ancient optical apparatuses.

About the Artist

Born in 1979 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Juliana Borinski studied audio-visual media art at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM) in Germany until 2007 and, between 2004 and 2005, at the National School of Fine Arts at the Villa Arson, in Nice, France. Her work blurs the borders between different practices such as video, experimental cinema, photography and performance. Her expanded media installations often integrate basic new technologies, materials and machines referring to historical media techniques and physic experiments.
