Just Behind the Ordinary

Video used in the art installation entitled "Invitation to Play with Light" (installation documentation below). I projected the video into a space and invited participants to use mylar, mirrors, a prism, and fabric to play with and distort the light and color, creating their own unique experience. With the effects of reflection and refraction, my goal was to challenge the participants' perception of reality. Quantum physics says that the atoms that make up everything are constantly fundamentally changing between existence as a particle and as a wave. In addition, they are continually moving in and out of the 'past', 'present' and 'future'. With this knowledge, there is no stable, universal reality. All of our visual experience is merely a dream; a trick of the light. I invite the participants to expand their minds with this knowledge and embrace the dream.
