About the artwork

image

In Theatre of Magic, Bracke shows images he took with a camera obscura inside pinball machines. TOM is a road show consisting of an installation in which a pinball machine occupies a central place. In addition there are photographs of interiors of what appear to be operas, theaters and cabarets, but also city images that make the viewer dream pseudo-futuristic scenes. The viewer is invited to decide where and how the images have been realized. Since his childhood Bracke has been an avid pinball machine player, and he still participates in major championships.
