Above/Below | 2013 | light installation
Above/Below is a primitive planetarium that shifts with the presence of the audience. The installation consists of six overhead projectors on the floor of a darkened room. On each sits a sheet of aluminum foil with hundreds of tiny holes. These function as apertures, projecting light passing through to create an array of “stars” on the ceiling and walls. Above/Below references both the prehistoric conception of stars as punctures in the mythological fabric of a night sky as well as the camera obscura, a darkened room in which the “outside” is revealed on the interior walls.
