ARTIST STATEMENT (English / Espanol)

Aurora is a Mixed Media Lighting installation. I found its original inspiration from the natural phenomenon, the Northern Lights.

Light is one of my primary materials because it creates presence without physicality. In many occasions, it can be easily taken for granted, since much of what humans perceive comes from light, yet even that which is apparent can be mysterious. I’m always looking for the instances when light, in its changing forms, makes us contemplate and experience an ordinary circumstance in a different way.
