Hi! Flynn Talbot, an Australian lighting specialist, created a faceted triangular structure with multicolored shadows. You can find the piece at the PSAS gallery in Perth, Australia, for the primary exhibition.
With three-sided panel with one surface covered in spiky cardboard structures of up to two meters in length. The colors red, blue and green were used to cast light onto the panel’s protruding polygons. Combined it created a 10-minute-long sequence of moving and overlapping colors across its surface.
Talbot says “Colour in light is different to paint for example. Red and green paint make brown but with light they create yellow. The wall sculpture is designed to break up the light and explore the mixing of colour.”
“Primary was conceived when I lived and worked in Berlin,” said Talbot. “Almost two years later I found a temporary home for it in my home town of Perth, Australia. After many experiments with different light sources and cardboard structures I found a balance of dark and light to create a deeply moving installation.”
Specifically situated at the back of the room, so the visitors could see it as they entered the space.
“Visitors to the exhibition were presented with a long view of the piece, most thinking it was simply a 2D projection on the wall,” Talbot said. “On a closer look the three-dimensionality of the work became apparent and the depth of the polygons could be seen.”
Besides the light, you will listen a soundscape created by the same artist. He intended to create an immersive environment and did it!
