Convergence Table by Ben Alun-Jones

Convergence table explores how we perceive and therefore change the objects around us.

When alone, the table merges into the background, becoming almost ‘invisible’. However when approached, the table wakes, revealing the hidden depths and creating an almost infinite space beneath. The viewer can never be sure of the true form of the object. The convergent reflections focus inwards to create an uncertain impression of depth that continuously changes as you are in fact influencing them. They explore a future in which technology is increasingly invisible.
