Changing the original plan and now having all the resin droplets and large colourful indexical trace paintings in the darkness of the Black Room has opened up a bit of a conundrum. How do I now light the Black Room to achieve the result I’m after?
After an afternoon of research I’m now looking at motion sensor activated spot lighting rather than the LED route I’d planned originally. This way I should be able to provide enough light to illuminate specific elements within the installation, but still maintain the integrity of the whole piece. Also, this will add another dimension to the installation because the lighting will be triggered inadvertently by the viewer(s) as they walk through and around the art work.
If this works I’ll have managed to achieve another goal of mine … that of viewer interaction in my installations.
