Uni Blog 2018

Hello, so this is a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around my final major project from university (over a year ago). The aim of the blog was explore the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Feels like a million years ago I started this but anyway, hope you enjoy 

Anthony McCall's Solid Light Sculptures

Traditionally artist would sculpt with marble and stone whilst others use more esoteric methods. for Anthony McCall, who is a British born artist, falls in the latter as he creates light sculptures. The pictures shown above showcases McCall’s “solid Light Sculpture’ which was exhibited at the Hamburger Bahnhof museum in Germany.

The artwork is actually a 2d drawing which is projected vertically through fog to produce a volumetric shape in the black space. In addition to the graphical volumes slowly change as viewers interact with it. 

What is so captivating about this project is how a 2 dimensions drawing has been transformed into something physical, making the intangible tangle. in addition to this, it was McCall’s transformation of s standard space which drastically changed the mood of the room, giving the impression you were floating in space
