Line Projections

The aim of these simple installations was to find out how simply you can change the perception of a room through the projected light which was moving.

By staring into a blank space with lines going vertically towards the middle point of vision made the room appear curved and much smaller than what it was originally. They felt lifted up and above their own reality into another dimension. This proved that light is such a powerful way of manipulating a given space.

In Turrell’s works two-dimensional light plays the lead role in a space thus changing it into a three-dimension field of immersive vision. What I have been trying to achieve was a manipulation of space and light in a way that it is kinetic and that movement changes the way you perceive the space and at times makes it virtual and three- dimensional.

Although this was only an experiment of how our visual field of view when altered changes how we perceive things, I found a lot about the mind and body and how they are affect by change of visual senses and I do hope to experiment with these ideas furthermore.

Afrum I (White)(1967)

‘…groundbreaking series of works exploring the ways light can manipulate the perception of space, grouping them into broad categories based on similarities in structure and perceptual effects. ‘- Gugghenheim’

Visitors encounter a glowing cube floating in the corner of a room; what first appears to be a solid object resolves upon closer inspection into simple planes of light.

A striking illusion made purely out of flat projection. I certainly find this piece intriguing and how artificial light can make something appear so real.
