The physical and manmade projection aspects (Sunlight and Moonlight Lighting works)


[StrikingFLICKERdancE] is a video installation that seeks to contemplate the properties of light and dark through artificial and natural light sources. Filmed in my home, shifting beams of light and shadow transform familiar domestic objects into the unfamiliar, and transforms the domestic into a formalist zone.

The play of natural and artificial light is further explored in the installation of the work where TV screens, projectors and natural light are layered upon each other. The work references expanded cinema in the way that it transforms the built environment of both the gallery and the domestic area that was filmed into an experimental and abstract presentation of pure light and shadow.
