Ant [Light Panel Series] (2005)
24" x 18" x 4", 18" x 24" x 4"
Wood, plexiglass, fluorescent bulbs, wiring
A series of illustrations and dynamic patterns drawn in points of light on wood, metal, and plexi wall panels. The subjects range from abstracted patterns to microphotographed images of insect heads. The light points appear to have sophisticated variations in brightness but are actually hundreds of tiny holes drilled into the surface through which fluorescent light shines through. Acrylic surfaces further diffuse the light patterns, and hide the image when turned the light is turned off.
