About the Sculpture:
‘Disruptive Light Apparatus’ plays with the notions of encrypted communication between light and landscape utilising a paper composite more commonly used in the construction industry. The shattered composition of shape and form create interference and interruption asking the viewer to witness and experience the surrounding forest as a fragmented landscape. This reflection may be seen as an analogy of a fractured society and our place within it. A visually disruptive framed composition for the viewer, acting as a paper ‘window’ sitting in landscape format upon the ancient oak plinth. Quiet moments of contemplation may be observed as the arc of the sun casts moving shattered shadows upon the forest floor entwined with the sound of birdsong.
This disruption in the woodland setting references my ongoing research and continuing work responding to a WWII Radar Bunker; its architecture, communication towers and layered referencing of subterfuge, secret defence and displacement.’
