Light (2009)

 

A resin cast represents the spent light bulb that once lit the room, whilst encapsulating the moth that once danced around it. The idea that a positively phototactic moth mistakes an artificial light for the moon suggests that for the organism, a room in a house becomes an entire planetary system.

Light was created during a 6 month art residency with The Berlin Office in Berlin, Germany.

It was exhibited in 2009 at 91mQ project space in Berlin as part of Roaming, an exhibition curated by Alessandro Castiglioni. The work also recently formed part of the Flis Holland and Victoria Lucas exhibition at Vapaan Taiteen Tila in Helsinki in 2014.
