A Silent Embrace
Choi Yan Ting
Light brings everything by terminating dark eternity, yet, as the American artist Michelle Cooper states, “Given the right lighting, all the colours in the world can be seen in a white object”. When we are sensitive to its embrace, light has dominated our space and senses silently without acknowledgement, hence light can be defined as simply sublime. In this respect the artist Karl Appel states that “Light is intangible, it is there and not there. You can’t eat it, you can’t taste it, you can only see it and sense it. Even blind people can sense light; it’s something instinctive.” Through the use of a series of simple structures containing light emitting diodes (LEDs) and carefully positioned prisms and mirrors, my work explores how light travels across and between spaces and forms. The resulting installation will reflect and transmit the pervasive and complex nature of light.
