A new exploration in colour and light. Primary is a three sided wall installation which is illuminated by three LED light sources. This is a reference to the primary colours of light, red, green and blue (RGB). These base colours of light have defined the quantity of light sources and the use of triangles. Everything in threes. The cardboard structure is designed to fragment the light and show how coloured light is mixed. Light and object are intrinsically connected.
Visitors to the exhibition were presented with a direct front view of the piece, most thinking it was simply a 2D projection on the wall. On a closer look the 3 dimensionality of the work became apparent and the depth of the polygons (up to 2 meters) could be seen. The front and side view are very different, each offering a unique visual experience.
Primary has been specifically designed to create the right ratio of shadow which is then illuminated by the opposing light sources. Light and shadow are working together and through a 10 minute programmed light show, a real feeling of movement is created. A soundscape completed the installation for a full immersive experience.
