TARO NASU is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by Jonathan Monk, Lenticular LeWitt from 12th April, 2018.
A work that comprises of 99 lenticular* prints mounted on 10 mm forex.The starting point for this piece was a 16 mm film I made in 2001 that animated a Sol LeWitt book titled 100 Cubes. LeWitt's artist book was placed horizontally and flipped through at 24 frames a second... the serial nature of the original cubes allows for them (when projected upon a white wall) to magically float and rhythmically change colour at the same time. With this new series of images the cube has found its true upright format, with sequence edited down to three images per frame (or picture).
Installed in a single line, the viewer is asked to activate and animate the piece by walking through the gallery space. Each movement, however slight, is reflected in the changing colours of each printed cube.
*Lenticular printing is a technology in which lenticular lenses (a technology that is also used for 3D displays) are used to produce printed images with an illusion of depth, or the ability to change or move as the image is viewed from different angles.
