‘AD INFINITUM’ EXHIBITION
This show took it’s title from the latin word, ad infinitum, meaning infinity. The concept of infinity has always interested me….”something that is unlimited, endless, without bounds”. Inspired by my passion for words and my love of light, the exhibition showcased a collection of LED, Infinity light boxes and a ‘Talking Type’ series that played with the meaning of words and their visual representation.
My Infinity Tunnel Light boxes, represent a journey. Their repetitive nature, both mesmerizing and seductive, are a metaphor for Life. They compel us to engage and get lost in the experience. In the cycle of life, a tunnel is the first and last thing we see. It is the first viewpoint of a newborn and at the end of life, the the last thing we see.
These works are especially relevant during these uncertain times. Not only do they act as a metaphor for most of us feeling like we are falling down a rabbit hole, they are also soothing and meditative to live with.
The “Talking Type” series, in white neon chrome flex, is about making words ‘talk’ through their visual representation. language and typography join forces to create a powerful visual variation from our usual perception.
I was initially asked to create these works for a group Light exhibition, ‘Luce’, at Hall & Wilcox. I went on to design commission’s for private clients. I also designed a limited collection for select design stores in Melbourne: The Coolhunter, Franque and Mondopiero. In February, 2018, I was invited by Euroluce to represent them in the White Night exhibition in Melbourne.
After darkness, comes light.
