At the beginning of the XX century psychoanalyst Viktor Tausk described the case of occurrence of an imaginary ‘Influencing machine’. One of the effects produced by the impact of this machine is described as compulsion to look at pictures. The projections are shown on a plane, on the walls and windowpanes, wherein images are not as bulky as in typical hallucinations. In such a situation the visual construction becomes a tool of curvature for mental space. It appears as an external screen on which internal changes are projected, as well as simultaneously creates a chain of distances and turns into a change provocateur.
First of all I was interested in the plan of expression, namely the transition of “psychotic” from psychopathology to aesthetics. The actual speaking a visual language about the visual language itself.
