Pascal Grandmaison - One Eye Open, installation views and stills, 2011. Length: 5:30 mins. HD video, black and white. Images © Pascal Grandmaison. Used here by kind permission from the artist. All rights reserved.
One Eye Open is the conceptual inversion of Pascal Grandmaison’s previous work Soleil différé, completed in 2010. The film shows a bouquet of artificial flowers that seem to come to life. The flowers are animated by using the cold and “commercial” binary light (studio flash for fashion photography).
