seeking the white, 2014


The light sculpture tells the story of Plato and why we are seeking 'completeness'. We humans used to be 'Sphere Humans' until we got split in half by Zeus. No matter what sexuality you have there is another half that completes you. In this sculpture the color white represents the incorporated completeness of the 'Sphere Humans'. The different colors, just like the humans who were being cut in half by Zeus, these colors are dancing around each other to find their counter parts, their complimentary color. They reunite and melt together into the color white. In this fashion the whole sculpture turns slowly, completely white until they get torn apart and the process starts all over again. Seeking for a partner is only the beginning of our journey.
