Imagraph is a projector that shows images to your already closed eyes. A participant lies on their backs and shut their eyes as if they were sleeping. An LED billboard is hangared above their head, with optical fibers from each of its pixels extending like tentacles to the surface of their eyelids. In every optical pathway, the color of light is calculated to compensate for the color shift caused by the absorption spectra of blood and melanines in the eyelid. The light, which is seen as a gradation of blue by the spectral compensation, turns out to be the intended color eventually on their retina. The uninterruptedly presented image inside the closed lid acquires a unique texture, which seems sprung up spontaneously in their brain. Consequently, Imagraph establishes a singular situation, where the externally projected image and the internally sprung image are irreversibly mixed up into the one, afront of which the participants surrender themselves to be presented. This project attempts to mediate between two very fundamental attitudes: projecting images and closing eyes.
