1. Disclosed Projection explores the intimate space of the home. Objects from the artist’s personal life are staged in the studio and lit with a high contrast light that reduces objects to flat blacks and bright whites. It looks to disclose the everyday passage of light through a space, which gives newness of life. The projection of this light, becomes a perceptual study of the ephemeral nature of light.

    An animated video is made with key frame drawings produced in pastel on Fabriano paper. As the light moves, awareness deepens of the depth of shadow beneath and one visits this closeted darkness, seemingly unconscious. The image morphs and there is a double take as a syntagmatic structure pushes the boundary of the space-time paradigm. The light moves from yin to yang. There is an emergence, a reckoning and a poetry of projection and perception.

    Objects in our homes automatically become autobiographical in nature, they are our physical shadows, and give us access to a personal interior otherwise inaccessible. This work challenges us to focus on the light of the present, the uniqueness that shades of light imbue into the mundane objects in our homes.
