Vincent Leroy's 'The Pebble' is an immersive installation designed as a multi-sensory experience, meant to "engage and connect" its viewers.
The installation features an enormous elliptical mirror, which delicately floats in a circular motion inside the Grand Palais in Paris. Using low-fi technology, the giant mirror slowly rotates in a manner that confuses and intrigues the senses. The demonstration is meant to highlight an intimate relationship between speed and distance, by distorting an onlooker's view point and disrupting the world's natural rhythm. The Pebble serves as an expansion of the artist's previous work titled 'Boreal Halo,' which utilized the same materials.
The artist's work merges art and technology to create installations that are as visually stimulating as they are scientifically experimental.
