The Shape of Light is a multi-media immersive installation involving sound, spoken word, dance and video projection, based on an ongoing poem that explores color through association and sensory perception. The conical form of each soft structure references the shape of light as it enters the eye and as it exits a projector. With its translucent skin, images slide through, fragment + overlap and can be viewed from exterior or interior. One is both isolated and interconnected, cocooned and immersed in biological and aquatic worlds. As this time of confinement shifts, we tentatively sense the porousness of our space.
