”Moiré (Wallpaper)” 2009
Variable size (as seen on the pictures : 3m high x 8.6m wide)

Print patterns of slightly bent paralleled lines are put on top of each other to produce moiré, which emerges as a secondary pattern resulting from the different lines’ relation to one another. Each layer is a different shade of grey, and can be seen individually upon close inspection.

“In physics, a moiré pattern (pronounced /mwɑːˈreɪ/ or /ˈmɔəreɪ/ in English; [mwaˈʁe] in French) is an interference pattern created, for example, when two grids are overlaid at an angle, or when they have slightly different mesh sizes.”
