Light Study, 2012

Installation, 100 watt incandescent bulb, single channel audio

An entire feature film’s averaged light levels as viewed through the shifting brightness of a 100 watt light bulb. This installation from 2012 was installed in the Mills College Art Museum’s abandoned tower, a concrete hexagonal room capped off and unfinished. A single bulb floats in the middle of the tower, fluctuating to each movie frame as the incendiary sounds of the film reverberate throughout the space.
