Matter in Mind, 2021
Alkinois, Athens, Greece
The work, which was part of a group show at Alkinois, Athens, considers the elements that make up the electronic screen: taking these materials as the starting point for sculptural work. The red, green, and blue sunglasses make up the RGB colour model which is used for the sensing, representation, and display of images in electronic systems, such as televisions, computers, and smartphones. Thinking about how traditional stained glass is a precursor to the modern consumption of circulated imagery. And how, simply, a coloured glass lens alters the view of the wearer. The bulb series take the element from the screen, the light, and turns it back into a more practical entity: a simple indoor star and simulation of warmth.
