My work is focused around installations made from various found materials. I manipulate these materials in diverse ways using a combination of lights to create immersive environments.
My aim is to investigate the phenomena of light and vision through these everyday materials and how they can reveal the structural elements of light such as the prismatic spectrum. This is a close up of my installation Transparent Light. The eye only sees the prism and this is what constructs our vision; the colour spectrum combined together at different variations creates the patterns and objects we see everyday. This work aims to allow the viewer to experience this variation of colour and light in a subjective environment.
