0910 Light Shots
0910 Light Shots is a continuation of her light based multi-media work such as Jewels of Kvinesdal in Norway (2009) and Shooting Stair (2009) published by Dorfman Projects in NY. In these recent works Raphaele mingles the spatial clarity and structure of minimalism with the dynamic and virtual qualities of new media and technology. Using light beams to draw lines and planes in space, she constructs both the visible evidence of basic geometry and the invisible and undefined structures of space into which these exist and extend. The piece created for the Project Room for New Media will be at once a site-specific ephemeral object and an interactive installation; the composition evolving in color and perspective according to the viewer’s position within. The electric presence of this irradiant sculpture takes root in basic physics, creating an arrestingly essential visual space and an environment for contemplation and reflection, whilst underlining primary phenomena intrinsic to our surroundings and exploring principles of perception.
