Project Description

Experience the perspective of darkness as she negotiates her space and place among the luminaries.

Consisting of Ether references the sublime – a greatness beyond all possibility of calculation, measurement, or imitation. According to Kant, the sublime is the actuality of the noumena as opposed to the phenomenal. This project, using intangible light, seeks to create an experience that translates to the sublime.

This project began with the investigation of the idea of the noumena. Grappling with the paradox of a thing existing in actuality yet not existing in isolation. It oscillates between reality and perception.
