Blue Star

 

(2014)
LED Lights, Mirror, Filters, Wire
240cm diameter

 

While more rare, there are stars in the sky that emit light in the blue spectrum. Recreated here through geometric patterns of light emanating from a center point, ‘Blue Star’ also questions what our reality would be like if our Sun emitted blue light. How would ‘life’ have evolved under a different frequency of light? A curved mirror in the center reflects the environment around the viewer, so they can see their environment with light from the ‘blue star’.
