Light Sculpture Art
Light is a source of life. Try to picture the Earth without it and you will realize that animals, plants and even humans would have never existed.
Wherever there is no light, the darkness emerges. Since the ancient times, a night is the time of ultimate fears. Without a clear vision of the surroundings, we find ourselves separated from the outer world, left one on one with our inner thoughts and feelings.
A source of light always produces shadows. In the same way, an idea of death would have never been invented without the existence of life. As you can see, the statement represents a concept of the duality. Nothing exists on its own, even the most distinct opposites. The shadows themselves can encourage our fears as they do at night while they please our eyes with unbelievable composition and intangible textures in pieces of light sculpture art.
Immersive large-scale installations of creative lighting art develop the mentioned above thoughts bringing out new verges of experience through the visual media. The most spiritual and incomprehensible phenomenon plays with our minds creating illusions and unfolding mysteries. Light installation artist becomes a magician, who in a fashion of magic communicates with a viewer delivering insights at the edge of perception.
