Discovered nearly 120 years ago, Hilbert space-filling curves are a mathematical phenomenon permitting a squared surface to be traversed without crossing the same point twice. Applying this principle to his scientific research, Austrian artist Florian Grond proposes a work focussing on the notions of space-time and the infinite line. Images of the visitor, captured by a small camera at the gallery entrance, are transmitted to the far right of a triple horizontal video projection, appearing in the form of a hatched square. This in turn is fragmented into a series of fine lines that stream along the length of the wall and merge into a kind of immobile memory block that preserves the folds of past time.
Along the Line
