“Time Tilings” is a series of four site-specific interventions created for the Artefact festival. These interventions project light onto floors, extending existing tile patterns to stark, line-based animations. Unlike some of the more theatrical projections we’ve looked at, this one shows a great deal of sensitivity in the way it modifies the existing architectural context; it heightens the tile-work, but does not overpower it.

I found a fascinating text on Valbuena’s website called  “Projection – Injection – Incision. About Pablo Valbuena’s ‘Extension Series‘”. It describes Valbuena’s work as follows:      

Like an architect, he draws lines to expand this space. This way, he unites the actual and the virtual in one and the same reality.

Note also that Valbuena showed a projection work called “para-site” at the Mattress Factory in 2011.
