My installation 'Unfinished Mystery; Life in the digital age' is a series of 6 self illuminating text sculptures that hang vertically or horizontally. The artworks are made from laser cut acrylic sheet and black epoxy resin. The lights in the artworks are 12volt LEDs. The artworks create a question in the mind of the viewer whether they are art or design.
Creating an interactive series of artworks that inspire people to find meaning in the mundacity of modern life. The text on the artworks encourages people to take up a creative act and make music, films, stories, artworks as a means of making new connections with people.
Myself David Kenworthy covered all aspects of the artworks. From designing and constructing the artworks to writing the text for the artworks. Installing the lighting systems and hanging the artworks in various environments.
The installation has been set up in a number of different exhibitions and light festivals and biennales in Australia and Germany. The installation has been seen by over 100,000 people in Australia and over 50,000 people in Frankfurt and Berlin. Over the next couple of years hopefully it will be set up in cities all over the world.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
