D-N SF 12 PG VI - Atrium space in Venice’s Palazzo Grassi has been transformed into a seemingly endless white expanse by artist Doug Wheeler
As part of an exhibition showcasing illusions with light, the oddly titled D-N SF 12 PG VI installation by Doug Wheeler utilises a white backdrop comprised of fibreglass which is illuminated by LEDs to fool the eye into believing the space is endless. If a visitor ventures far enough inside and faces away from the entrance, it can appear as though they’re utterly lost in light.
“Light becomes matter and redefines space and time by eliminating the perceptual markers of the visitor, who is left between a mirage and reality, nature and artifice, fullness and emptiness, moment and duration”
Certainly a fascinating piece, but does it remind anyone else of the hyperbolic time chamber from a certain classic anime? (fans will get it)
