LIGHT+LIFE, 13th – 22nd March

LIGHT+LIFE

Supported by the NGV and MELBOURNE DESIGN WEEK 12 – 22 MARCH 2020

Presented by Brightspace, 8 Martin St, St Kilda

OPENING: THURSDAY 19 MARCH, 6–9PM

Light and colour are the environmental factors with the most significant impact on our wellbeing. In this exhibition Light+Life, eight artists and designers produce light-based installations exploring how light affects us physically, mentally and emotionally by engaging visitors in a multi-sensory journey. They employ new ways of designing the immaterial into shape and form to create an array of meditative, scientific and aesthetic works that weave light through narratives of life.

I have two works in this show.

Light with Gems Therapy
The first is a performative work utilising a light therapy technique. As part of my research into the effects of light I looked at health therapies. Last year I studied at a research university in Holland and became trained as an Ayurvedic light with gem therapist. I will present an introductory talk about this technique, its origins, its history, how it works and include demonstrations. For more info: mlg-world.com

An Etymology of Light.
The second work is an interactive installation about light and its meaning. I am exhibiting a bound book that I self-published titled An Etymology of Light. This is also part of my continuing research of meanings around my artwork.
