Lightness of Being is part of an ongoing project begun in early 2017 collecting still and time based media that explore how light and sound may express the ineffable intimacy and momentary experiences of our personal space.
Title: Lightness of Being – Source
Media: Duratran Lightbox Transparency Print
Size: 60cm x 42cm LED Lightbox Frame
The subject of this Image entitled ‘Source’ manifests all the remaining images and video works and acts as a keystone to the project, the portal connecting the internal and external worlds. This image is presented as a Lightbox, engaging with the viewer through transmitted rather than reflected light.
Title: Lightness of Being – Becoming (45s Preview)
Media: Digital Video 1080 x 720
Duration: 2mins 35s (without titles)
Sound: Multi Track Audio
This video and sound work presents image in a state of becoming as a metaphor of both personal development and intraspection, an horizon to be observed but never reached. The sound of the artists breath and underlying heart beat bring a connection between the internal and external experience of a moment of connection with a place of intimate importance.
Title: Lightness of Being – Continuance
Media: Thermal Pigment Prints
Size: 30cm x 42cm hand bound folio bookwork.
The images above are presented as a ‘work in progress’ hand bound folio bookwork, presented alongside the Video and Lightbox. The images are all captured within a single personal space and are expressions of the intimate experience of place connected through a practice of mindful attention to the present moment.
