Overview

Altered States of Light Vol 1 is an experiment in accelerating movement between the visible and the invisible. It takes the form of a room-sized device. Staged in a glazed street front at a busy intersection in Seoul, twenty-nine pillars of holographic matter are arranged into a labyrinth for light and visitors.

Goals

Hyundai Motor Studio is a multifunctional space with a coffee shop, library and exhibitions spaces. The main gallery area is surrounded by windows on the corner of a busy intersection in downtown Seoul. It was vital that the piece could live within this context and be informed and responsive to the presence of city life.

Process

We worked in a small team as both artist and designers of the piece. Fabrication was done in both Canada and from a distance in Seoul.
