Primaries & Secondaries (2013) 

RGB LED, acrylic rod, plywood, acrylic panels

65 x 65 x 65cm

Using the notion that we break down our perception of phenomena into an almost mathematically rigid structure, Primaries and Secondaries combines our understanding of space and colour into a single field. The tri-axis foundation of spatial dimensions and primaries of coloured light are both evident within the outer shell, creating an interior of infinite variety within the gamut of human perception. The acrylic rods are lit from each end with colour changing RGB LEDs and arranged in a three dimensional array, creating two dimensional shapes.

 

Salt Spiral 2

Salt, acrylic, adjustable white LEDs, remote control, oak frame (lime-washed).

80×80 cm

Intended as a work that emulates the natural phenomena present at an inland salt lake with the spiral itself being a reference to not only water but the use of the motif by many indigenous cultures around the world. The piece was created over a period of around 8 months through a daily process of spraying and evaporating a saturated salt solution in a fine mist over the surface. The crust would slowly build up over time, with many clumps forming and growing, some changing colour due to impurities in the space while the subdued palette of light used pays homage to the subtle variation of qualities inherent in the salt itself.
