The Observatory: Second Site

The Observatory Act 3, video still, image credit Rohini Devasher

The Observatory: Second Site at Khoj, is an extension, a second avatar of a live collaboration between artists Rohini Devasher and Legion Seven at Kaserne Basel that will manifest in the digital interface. An exploration of Saturn’s first observation to its contemporary renderings and an unpacking of the ambiguity in ways of ‘seeing’. By transforming the ordinary immobile observatory into a peripatetic digital observatory, this excursion into cosmological bodies will ask questions around the act of “seeing” and “perceiving”, and the relationship between the “observer” and the “observed”, and shifts in time, scale, perception and resolution with the virtual interface.

Stay tuned for more information.
