Moving Dunes

Moving Dunes
Raphael Thibodeau

Moving Dunes is an installation exploring the role of perspective and anamorphosis in visual representation.

Moving Dunes initiates the public to the basics of this approach in a playful way. By wielding the street surface, vast ripples are generated, resembling human features.

Reflective spheres and geometric shapes amplify patterns and multiply points of view. As the observer moves, the street transforms, shapes reverse, the ground comes alive and destabilises.

This project has been longlisted in the installation design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
