In our fast-paced world today, how often do we take the time to slow down and notice the little things in our lives? When was the last time you noticed the number of open windows in a room? The number of panels on a paneled door? Or the number of unlit lights in a room? As we’re engrossed in our mobile devices, putting our faces deep into our screens, we lose sight of the tiniest things that make up our world today. Take light for example, it travels at a speed of 299 792 458 m/s in vacuum, it’s a natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible. Essentially, light is important and yet, so often taken for granted.
In this project, light is essentially my collaborator. My goal/emphasis for the project is to slow down and to appreciate the little details of how light interact with our surroundings – especially architectural structures that we’ve become so accustomed to. I hope that the patterns and images made with the help of light allow us to see the world through a lens that we’ve never seen through before.
