This sculpture is based on the folk toy, Jacob's Ladder. It was filmed at Studio Wayne McGregor in December, 2018.
This video demonstrates the sculpture's changing behavior under various light conditions. In bright light, wooden panels are accented by shimmering mirrors. In dark settings, mirror panels reflect the forms and color of the surrounding environment. If light is pointed directly at the sculpture, wooden panels act as a projection surface, and the mirrors appear as gaping holes. This lighting condition also transforms the surrounding space, as it becomes bathed in a caustic network.
