THE LIGHT ILLUSION
The light illusion, Installed at St Louis Artist Guild, ST. Louis, MO
The Light Illusion is an award winning papercut art installation. It was chosen as one of the artworks to receive a prize at the Biennial.
This is an engaging installation that invites the public to move around the space, and realign themselves with what they see in their environment. I specifically placed it in relation to multiple track lights in the ceiling. As viewers enter and walk around the space, they see an abstracted, suspended artwork. The installation consists of multiple sheets of intricately cut paper depicting ripples and reflections. The installation plays with the idea of liquidity to create an illusion of multiple sheets of space elegantly falling through the center, with the surrounding shadows becoming part of the installation.
