‘Transmission’ explores light as catalyst to investigate the risks in our everyday life. Examining and reinventing light as a material to provoke our understanding of the space within the constructs of the gallery and beyond, producing experimental methodologies to act as a mirror and analysis of the structure of our world. By creating these dialogues which challenge conventional views, the exhibition aims to push preconceived expectations of how visibility works and is understood. The exhibition surveys the processes of how light moves through space, exploring both its and our expectations of its functions. How light moves through space can often bring forward new possibilities in presentation and representation, igniting exploration through visibility and quite often producing overlooked qualities. The works explore visibility, the process of perception, expectations versus function and assesses how our beliefs or understanding of light can be changed or manipulated through positioning, alignment and juxtaposition.
