Ether

Ether was produced with intentionally limited time and materials as an exercise in creativity within constraints. The initial day or two was set aside for exploration of material and experimentation with the space.  After establishing the medium and process, a repetitive and almost meditative installation began. Days later, after 12km of nylon thread had been woven, spun and hung within the architecture of the chapel, a video projected through the piece brought Ether to life. As the video moves through the colour spectrum Ether flickers and pulses with various hues, almost as an apparition floating in space.  As you move around the space the spherical light seems to follow you, even as you approach the projection to see the many layers that make up the ethereal form. Ether grew organically from play and exploration and serves as an hypnotic form for contemplation, as soothing as it is beguiling.
