Galvanized Wire, Plastic Wrap, Expanding Foam, Acryclic Paint, Public Participation
This work explores how low light levels distort vision, making us see shapes rather than objects, and flat plains of colour. Through the process of drawing at night, a series of sculptures were produced, inspired by the distorted environment that was witnessed. The work aims to place the viewer inside that environment, something that is both familiar and not, for them to see what was observed and react to this emotionally. The sculptures are light in weight and are easily movable, allowing participants to pick them up, re-distribute them, stack them, and explore their tendancies - this encompasses the participant, amalgamating them into the created environment.
