Light Harp, 2017
From the primitive love of fire to the fascination with the night sky and space, ours senses are heightened in twilight, and it is from this state of brightness in the dark my love of light and light art has grown. I was a child of the Space Age filled with dreams of buildings my own spaceship and flying off to explore exotic alien worlds. As an adult my art has become a spaceship for my imagination fulfilling in a poetic way that wild idea. The Light Harp is a continuation of a long standing series of artworks and fascination with waves, generative forms arising from the interaction of forces within the piece. Luminous, dynamic and endlessly changing colour in response to artist created algorithmic software that controls the chromastrobic lights which are arranged on the ground shining up into the wave patterns.
