Games of Ilinx induce vertigo and disorientation. Sociologist Roger Caillois decribes Ilinx (Greek for ‘whirlpool’) as a pattern of play that alters perception. The installation is composed on multiple levels and illuminations, in order to challenge the gaze and ways of seeing. The arrangement invites the viewer to ‘break the biped’ — shift their body and alter their perspective — in order to approach the objects and commune with their material charge.
