Light art is an applied arts form in which light is the main medium of expression. It is an art form in which either a sculptureproduces light, or light is used to create a “sculpture” through the manipulation of light, colors, and shadows. These sculptures can be temporary or permanent, and can exist in two distinctive spaces: indoor galleries, such as museum exhibits, or outdoors at events like festivals. ~Wikipedia

“My work is more about your seeing than it is about my seeing, although it is a product of my seeing. I’m also interested in the sense of presence of space; that is space where you feel a presence, almost an entity — that physical feeling and power that space can give.”

❏ How LINE can create dimension of object and visualise the world.
I am interested in line as a subject which leads me to follow architectural lines in built environments. I am also interested in how do we perceive the environment we inhabit and what happens when a subtle shift is made in things which we have been use to see in a certain way. Does that subtle shift make us question our knowledge or our knowing and how? This query has been usually questioned through the medium of drawing on paper and in space and photography has been the interlocutor.
