I was intoxicated with all of you…all five or six hundred of you (1996).
Strobe-lights pulsating directly behind this artwork, fluctuate and warp the viewers’ physical perception of form and space. Illuminating abstract printed elements—through an animated programme of light—causes the surface to shift and jump, creating a hypnotic rhythm perceived by the eyes, and which reverberates through the body. The effect of light, irradiating and enriching through the printed surface, generates a phosphorescent presence and gives a three-dimensional quality, a depth of space. This space within, feels infinite and boundless, like a stellar nursery or thalassic landscape. I was intoxicated with all of you…all five or six hundred of you, paradoxically both nullifies and beats at the door to our senses: transporting us into a strange, submerged and hypnotic environment, lending our physical consciousness to another dimension of space.
Alongside this artwork were two other light-works exhibited: “Some Are Born To Strange Delight, Some Are Born To Endless Night” and Altar.
