Fantastico..! The phenomenological discovery of space through light (or together with sound) is really re·veal·ing. I am going to write an essay on this work and tie it with study of space/time structures.
hello – it is quite evident the two pieces being discussed are very different – the Webster piece is projection mapping and plays with design and pattern in 3D space – the Gilje piece has a simple beauty and is fascinating because it is purely a moving light that gracefully illuminates the squares and makes shadows. It alludes to the passing of time, to travelling along, walking on the pavement under street lamps – seeing your shadow shrink and grow… – there is something very elegant about the simplicity of this. It is working with the natural phenomena of how light interacts with space and objects and has a poetic beauty that relies on it’s refined and elegant realisation.
