floating water installation by martin leveque plays with viewer's perspective

martin leveque’s sanctuaire plays with light, water and mirror reflections to create a paradoxical experience and momentarily alter the reality of the spectator. the analog installation comprises a 45-degree mirror, cut in an anamorphic way to appear as a perfect circle of floating water from the viewer’s perspective.

first presented during mutek mx festival, the installation reflects martin leveque’s relationship with mexico city, a place of chaotic and powerful energy that acts as a never ending source of inspiration for the artist. a visual manifestation of that energy, the piece levitates above people’s heads, reflecting water and light in an attempt to offer visitors a momentarily escape of the monotonous rituals of everyday life.
