White Night #2 — Limited edition
White Night opens a research on Urban Light Objects (U.L.O) and arises from a series of images of hairdressers signs taken in Asia.
Whether they are hung on the corner of a street, on either side of a shop window, homemade from recycled materials, or coated in garish colors, these luminous signs decline, in a variation of forms and effects, the original blue-white-red version of the barber’s pole lamp.
These photographs reveal a collection of gestures of reappropriation, of sideways steps towards this popular attribute which appears as a signal in the city.
For version #2, the fluorescent filter electrifies the color to saturation, tipping the object towards a futuristic universe.
The movement is willingly slowed down to reinforce the hypnotic effect, like an endless rotation of the ribbon around the light.
Moved to other environments, White Night shifts away from its status as a sign, opening itself to new perspectives and uses.
