Beyond Perception

Photography, Water Installation, Bee’s Wax and Aluminium Sculptures - 2016    

My collection of works are influenced by the theme of “Science and Time”. The fact that the human eye cannot capture minute details of movement fascinates me. Our vision has many limitations. The brain can play tricks with reality resulting in optical illusions. These works contain an element of suspense as I believe that these moments contain an energy waiting to be broken.

Beyond Perception, Photography, Bee’s Wax and Aluminium Sculptures and Water Installation, 2016


My collection of works are influenced by the theme of “Science and Time”. The fact that the human eye cannot capture minute details of movement fascinates me. Our vision has many limitations. The brain can play tricks with reality resulting in optical illusions. These works contain an element of suspense as I believe that these moments contain an energy waiting to be broken. The series is interlinked through the element of water. The versatility of the substance allowed me to manipulate it in different ways. This is evident in the three works that I have created. On entering the exhibition space one can witness two examples relating to a frozen moment. The first is through photography where the camera captures an image which is normally impossible to view with the naked eye. This is because the eye captures an average of 45 frames per second as opposed to 4000 with a camera. The second are wax and aluminium sculptures. Their melted state solidified instantly as it was poured into water giving a prime example of a frozen moment.  The third piece is an optical illusion installation. Flickering lights shining on water transform a steady stream seemingly into droplets. Back to Artwork
