Light Props (video still) 2007
This installation emerged from a studio experiment in which video footage of London Theatre Billboards was projected onto broken rearview mirrors, also found in London. The installation expands upon this experiment, with the same video footage projected onto reflective cellophane and Perspex to create a similar effect, reflected around the exhibition space. The title of the work echoes Laszlo Moholy-Nagy’s 1932 film documenting his Light Space Modulator. Like the original title of the modulator, Light Prop for an Electric Stage, this also hints at a further play on words, between the idea of a theatrical play and the play of light that constitutes the work.
