The filmic sculpture “Focus Puller” a text projection is thrown from one glass projection surface to the other, trying to make the inscribed text visible. This work has been developed for the exhibition "Rosa Barba: Subject to Constant Change" at Turner Contemporary in Margate 2013, where a series of sculptures and films had been put in relation to Turner's lectures on perspective. A selection of those drawings he had used at Royal College had been part of the exhibition. The text on the film is, like other text based pieces, a kind of enigmatic monologue circling and zooming into a thought or an idea.
