Divine Lights Multi-Media Collaboration

My collaboration with Ben Z Cooper and Hfour made its debut at IDS West over the weekend. These are photos of the piece provided to me by Ben.

This is how the piece looks with the screen turned off.

The work is made up of two intricate hand cut pieces of paper sandwiched between two layers of glass which overlay a digital screen playing an animation on a three minute loop. I wish I had a video to share of the piece to give a clearer idea of the interaction of the video and paper cut. It cycles through colour changes and has glittery play of light similar to reflections on water. It’s lovely and mesmerizing to watch.

I think the work was well received at IDS West and may be exhibited next at the Eastside Culture Crawl in November.
