This is an outdoor version of the piece Light, 2013

An extroverted mass projects its interior mechanism to create its own atmosphere, prompting a dialogue between the rational topography and its dislocated environment.   The projected imagery builds in superimposed layers around the space.  As light leaks and pools across the façade of the central form it leaves pinhole after-images and sweeping slivers of light that take over and complicate the bulky mass.

 

Through reduced means using cardboard boxes, light bulbs and lenses, a rudimentary projection device is created wherein the light source is simultaneously the image.  The light bulb itself, as an updated quintessential pop object, also evokes searchlights and observation instruments.  As the light source, image, and instrument become collapsed, a picture of contemporary self-surveillance emerges.

 

The looping cinematic space recalls early Dadaist optical experimentations of Duchamp’s Rotoreliefs and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy Light-Space Modulator.

An extroverted mass projects its interior mechanism to create its own atmosphere, prompting a dialogue between the rational topography and its dislocated environment.  The projected imagery builds in superimposed layers around the space.  As light leaks and pools across the façade of the central form it leaves pinhole after-images and sweeping slivers of light that take over and complicate the bulky mass. 

Through reduced means using cardboard boxes, light bulbs and lenses, a rudimentary projection device is created wherein the light source is simultaneously the image.  The light bulb itself, as an updated quintessential pop object, also evokes searchlights and observation instruments.  As the light source, image, and instrument become collapsed, a picture of contemporary self-surveillance emerges.

The looping cinematic space recalls early Dadaist optical experimentations of Duchamp’s Rotoreliefs and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy Light-Space Modulator combined with the language of later works such as Annette Lemieux’s Search, which more explicitly evoke drone supervision and mechanization.
