Description of the artwork «Obscuration #5»

"Obscuration" is an innovation of the author allows to capture and objectify the image of a
places in the space-time continuum, adding additional meanings and narratives.
Actually obscuration is a structure of some form, serving as a key to the semantic solution to the author's hypothesis.
The facility operates on the principle of a pinhole camera – a simple analogue camera, the walls of which are not only the form and the surface of the object, but also a body of photographic image (inside the object coated with a photosensitive layer). Set
in some symbolic place (the place of promise), obscuration becomes part of the architectural space, and symbolic object and the photographic image at the same time. After the shooting the object down, turning in a scan, where the internal photographic surface enters into spatial relations with the external symbolic form and density of the object. Through these relationships, meaning
(index) acquires the qualities of the object, and the signified (the object-referent) is part of the meaning in the context of a particular site. Thus
occurs the topological relationship between a firm pair of "index-referent" (object image, the photographing-photographing), which implies not only more convincing, dialecti as the understanding between the "once and
Now," but phenomenological modes of recognition through the surface of the object.
