Work ships with custom powder-coated aluminum wall mount display system, as well as all required equipment. This work represents an ongoing effort by Sarkisian to realize new and sometimes startling results from the otherwise commonplace medium of video. Just as his Extruded Video Engine reconfigured the flat two-dimensional surface of a video screen into a fully spatial and volumetric vessel for his imagery, so does the Floating Pencil use video to create the perceptual illusion of material levitation. The work is meant to confuse the viewer's sense of perception through the subtle use of image, light, and movement.
