Uniquely brilliant and light, bearing structural resemblance to the activities of Fluxus, the work Distance seduces and draws the viewer into the active mode of perception. The work consists of two screens located next to one another inside the frame. On the basis of the mirror reflection of the figure, which acquires here the power of necessity, as well as thanks to time lapse, the author generates a situation where on person plays table tennis – with their own selves. The use of the same sequences in the already mentioned mirror reflection, and with a momentary time lapse, increases the intensity and engagement with which the viewer follows every detail of the frame. The work champions active perception.
