The Light Project 2013
The Light Project is an ongoing series begun in 1993 comprised of new media sculptures, video installations, and photography that exploits humans’ limited understanding of extraterrestrial worlds, physical reality, the theoretical models of space, time, and infinity. Subverting systems of politics, faith, and science, the project presents light as a universal language whose meaning is barely known, and assumes an almost dogmatic approach to making sense of the unseen, presenting a range of playful and speculative multimedia works to make sense of the universe.
The Light Project began with a series of Polaroid stills from science fiction films that captured beautiful and strange light formations. These were followed by a diverse array of manufactured artifacts: fiber optic figurative sculptures, cryptic geometric passports, fantastical resin alien cityscapes, and a book of transparencies that serves as the project’s visual index. These pieces are collected as a sort of archaeological survey, an interactive installation of light relics in which even the viewer’s movements are rarified and projected as shapes and shadows in the exhibition space.
By presenting its own simple system of understanding the universe, the The Light Project calls attention to the predominant cultural systems and calls into question their own legitimacy, ultimately bringing focus back to the present.
