Mirage, 2009

A pixelated palm tree on a small island, form the work “Mirage”. Thousands of little plastic cubes create a fuzzy jitter, which gives the piece an aura of physical un-focus. The strategy to impose anonymity on digital images through pixelation is stretched into three-dimensional space. So the sculpture is hovering in mid-air between depiction and abstraction. Hallucinating on a hot dessert day. 



“Mirage” is a permanent installation at the Gävle Art Centre in the north of Sweden.
