A SOUND OF LIGHT

APPEARING AROUND THE BEND

BARBARA CAMPISI


“We have art so that we shall not die of reality.” Friedrich Nietzsche


In this all-encompassing maze-like installation, LEDs form colored lines of light when reflected off translucent ‘walls’, confounding any sense of orientation. The viewers, as they walk inside the piece, complete it through their process of discovery.  During performances, dancers wearing lights move through and activate the light-based artwork, creating moving lines of light.   “A Sound Of Light, appearing around the bend” is in many ways inspired by a previous piece, entitled “The Cave”. 


The artist explains that “'“The Cave” originated in a cave in Cappadocia, Turkey, during an artist  residency at the Babayan Cultural Institute in 2012.  The feeling of scrambling  through a disorienting maze of ancient caves during my morning walks translated into a maze of colored light. Villagers visiting this cave  were delightfully disoriented, reacting spontaneously by interacting  with their cell phone lights.”. At FiveMyles, “A Sound Of Light, appearing around the bend” will bring this experience, on a larger scale, to the New York public.
