Light Transfix


INTRO

______________________________________________
The Ger­man philoso­pher Mar­tin Hei­deg­ger coined the term “Lich­tung” (clear­ing), which is widely treated in the first chap­ter of his book Holzwege, or Wooden Paths. The term refers to those open lumi­nous spots that reside within a forest’s dark­ness and the cross-section of paths that inter­sect it.
The piece is not about cap­tur­ing light… it is about expand­ing it. It is also about using a sculp­tural object made out of light-reacting mate­ri­als and a strong light beam (a pro­jec­tion) to cre­ate an immer­sive envi­ron­ment. The light beam goes through the sculp­ture where polar­ized acrylic pieces act as refrac­tive sur­faces, as mul­ti­pli­ers for each beam of light and it’s refrac­tions and reflec­tions. The sculp­ture is a lens.
One could say that those clear­ings become cog­ni­tive places, where paths end but also begin, a thresh­old between being lost and being found, and can also be inter­preted as places of self-recognition and self-awareness.
