LIGHT ET EXHIBITION

July 30, 2013 § 5 Comments

So excited to be presenting my first light sculpture at Kings ARI in Melbourne opening Friday, 30 August. My work is inspired by the glory of Spákonufell, the prophetess mountain of Þordis, in Skagaströnd, Iceland.

In Iceland, the words and sayings of sagas and hidden folk, Christianity and the old gods are somewhat arcane and indistinct and run as an undercurrent—mirrored in opposite by the constant visible presence of this mountain.

The unique outline of this looming rock, holding at bay a potent mystical/religious power casts a strange energy over people who live and stay in Skagaströnd. There is no place in town that it cannot be seen. And it changes size and colour in the shifting light. What is hidden and what is known and how these things can change, depending where you are.

    “If we knew all the laws of Nature, we should need only one fact, or the description of one actual phenomenon, to infer all the particular results at that point. Now we know only a few laws, and our result is vitiated, not, of course, by any confusion or irregularity in Nature, but by our ignorance of essential elements in the calculation. Our notions of law and harmony are commonly confined to those instances which seemingly conflicting, but really concurring, laws, which we have not detected, is still more wonderful. The particular laws are as our points of view, as, to the traveller, a mountain outline varies with every step, and it has an infinite number of profiles, though absolutely but one form. Even when cleft or bored through it is not comprehended in its entireness.”

  • Love your images, so ethereal and magical.
