PROJECTS N4 Kaldor Public Art Projects / Amplify the Uncanny II



The proposed spatial installation will elaborate the existing mirror relations in the CTA’s interior. The carpet floor covering which dominates the space is printed with dense repeat patterns. These patterns are constructed from mirrored, geometric shapes arranged on colour block backgrounds.

A series of videos will be embedded into elements of the existing architecture. The coat check desk, an alcove and a bi-fold wall will frame manipulated footage of the CTA’s carpet. As the patterned floor coverings shift onto the projected vertical plane, the shapes become loose and mobile. Every 9 minutes, the documented carpets will shake and vibrate as the City Rail train passes underneath the building.

Conic Intervention is designed to intensify and obscure the strange character of the Commercial Traveller’s Association. 100 intersecting cones make-up the intervention, each of which isconstructed from mirrored foil. The material and geometry are in conflict with each other; the mirror reflects while the geometrydistorts.
