The deeper the water, the clearer the mirror. Light emerges from the abyss. Gaston Bachelard
This body of work was first exhibited in Canberra as luminzoa, and then travelled to Melbourne in an exhibition with Gary Smith called lightforms.
A space of submersion—inviting reverie. The installation is a kinaesthetic experience of light as a seen, but also as a felt energy.
‘I mean, light is a substance that is, in fact, a thing, but we do not attribute thing-ness to it… But the most interesting thing to find is that light is aware that we are looking at it, so that it behaves differently when we are watching it and when we're not, which imbues it with consciousness.' James Turrell
A minimalist environment—black lenses, reflecting and holding the void. Slow, rotating LED light arms, scribing an orbit, over an expanse of glass. The light traverses the curve of glass…a beam of light reflects through the lens onto wall, floor, ceiling—luminazoas metamorphosing in the darkness.
These bodies of work are mixed media installations consisting of variable diameter kiln formed float glass lenses, and motorised LED lights on scissor jack stands.
