Benjamin Vandewalle [BE]
Benjamin Vandewalle graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels in 2006, and since then developed a diverse series of installation performances like Birdwatching and Point of View that question our perception. With PERi-SPHERE Benjamin Vandewalle develops a new small performative installation. A series of small dioramas is being developed, in which a spectator can lie down on his stomach and look down through a viewing slot. Through a periscope system he will get an image of the immediate environment that is mirrored from a different point of view. In this way, the gaze is disconnected from our exact physical position. By a series of shifting mirrors a montage can be made of different perspectives on the environment. In this way, a different imagination of the environment is established.
