DELTA, an installation by Olivier Ratsi [Antivj / Fr]
Since ancient times, Delta, the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet, has been represented by a triangle pointing upwards. Originating from the equivalent letter of the Phoenician alphabet, it is based on a hieroglyph initially representing a door.
Delta, an installation and part of the Echolyse project, is a work on the perception of space, that explores, through a dematerialised door, the possibility of a fictional three-dimensional space
Making use of the anamorphosis technique, the piece is based on the position of the spectator, predetermined by the artist, from which the audience will be able to visually reconstitute the geometrical symbol and discover the “pelures” (peelings) emitting from the very center of its gravity.
