This continues a series of spatial interventions that use the cheap, mass-produced material of coloured cellophane to create room-sized light filters – in this case, the subtractive primaries of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow, central to colour photography. The title lists the components of the work – the light that activates material, which is installed in relation to the specifics of the space and which moves in responses to the movements of air currents or bodies through the space. But it also references the immersive installations of California’s ‘Light and Space Movement,’ typified by the work of Robert Irwin and James Turrell. This local context helps to cast a new light on my thinking about the staging of immersive experiences and the exploration of sensory experience.
