LEDs, Frosted Glass, Computer Control
6.2m x 2.4m
A sustained, never-ending fireworks show. Perpetual explosions created using LED lights and generative software. The explosions fill the gaze of the viewer. They expand and fade out as the next one takes its place. The LEDs are mounted against the back wall and there is a large space between it and the diffused front glass, giving a sense of depth to the explosions.
The work is a large-scale visual spectacle. However, the spectacle has been extended and sustained indefinitely. It gives immediate aesthetic satisfaction but upon extended length viewings one might ponder the idea of visual numbness and media over-saturation.
