light masonry construction

Two modified slide projectors, coloured filters.
exhibited at line-space-material, a solo exhibition at Evolution House, Edinburgh, Scotland.
August 2009.

Two projectors are placed in opposite corners of the space, with spatially specific inserts to compensate for “keystone” distortion, creating two co–incident orthogonal images. Projective drawing methods, used to generate the complex forms in masonry vaulting, inspired this geometric compensation. Here light, usually considered both ubiquitous and ephemeral, is considered as a material in its own right, through a process of shaping and layering.
