— just watching Robert Henke’s Fragile Territories installation again. The resonance, vitality, vibrancy or ‘shimmer’ of the laser dot / point is entirely created because it is not there. It’s resonance is because of the in-between. The laser draws one point then moves to another point on the screen, draws a point there before returning and continuing the first point – the point now becomes a line (Tim Ingold) but when we look at it the point is now being drawn as a line elsewhere at the same ‘time’. This is persistance of vision (POV) – too quick for the eye and lasting on the retina.–
