Exploring Light

The Kinetica Art Fair has featured multiple installations that explored light using the latest technology to create art, such as the projection mapped sculpture.

Visual artist David Ogle‘s “O18015” uses nylon fishing line that is stretched across an open space in a geometric grid and then illuminated with UV LED panels.

David Hadlow Ogle commented: "Much of my work to date has dealt with exploring notions of materiality, of permanence and of the perception of objects in space. Using light as a sculptural medium, my work is innately ephemeral. It begins as a set of strict mathematical procedures that are played out within an environment. The space simultaneously shapes the work and becomes manipulated by it.  Through negating material properties, my current practice seeks a mode of fragility. It rests on the edge between a sculptural form and an environmental effect of light within a space; a context from which the work is inseparable. Such pieces utilise both ambient and artificial light, channeling it and molding it into sculptural works that completely divorce themselves from static material: sculptures without mass and forms without structures.
