CAOS Centro Arti, Terni

Terni Festival presents British artist Tim Spooner: an artist working in painting and live shows. Since 2010 he has been making and demonstrating collections of puppets or performing sculptures, presenting them in vibrating compositions of living and inanimate matter, sound and electricity. These shows aim to expand an understanding of the physical world by revealing something of its inner life.

Tim will present his performance entitled The Telescope.

The Telescope underwent a traumatic relocation and its lenses and mirrors became hopelessly rearranged. It's impossible to tell anymore whether the view through the telescope was of the surface of a distant planet or a microscopic reflection of the interior of the viewer’s own eye.

Nevertheless this new world is studied and documented thoroughly.

The Telescope looks through a broken telescope at a world which responds to being watched, a reflection of the watcher. A series of magnetic and chemical events are enacted under a microscope camera and presented live as a documentary account of an uncertain landscape.
