On the eve of the millennium, it is
increasingly apparent that light has become the defining medium
of the future. Integral to our way of life in so
many fields, light in its numerous forms and frequencies reveals
new potentials and expands our knowledge of the depth and breadth
universe. Small wonder that artists have been drawn to light
media that are in the process of developing themselves. Light
that can be
sculpted dimensionally in space offers another clue to a vast
potential that is emerging with our increasing awareness of it.
This installation is a testament to that creative process. "Signature
of the Source" uses light in its purest form as colour to
explore the transition
between energy, matter and mind. The installation's focused jets
of light spiral dynamically, while projecting perpendicularly
four feet into the
space above and below the nine foot roundel window. The lines
of light emanate from an unseen source. What happens there is
of the creative and transformative process. It is the crucible.
What emerges is new, changed and has the energy to propel itself.
Installation commissioned by the Werner
Richard - Dr. Carl Dörken Foundation of Herdecke, Germany,
for the Karl Ernst Osthaus-Museum in Hagen, Germany.
