A series of audiovisual installations exploring lighting on screen.Traditionally considered the responsibility of a cinematographer, lighting in a filmmaking context usually refers to the arrangement of illumination sources around a location or set to create a specific aesthetic. Expanding this term, lighting can also refer to creative control over the passages of illumination which constitute moving imagery, shaping ways that audiences perceive the frame. This exhibition engages with both facets through spatial projections that weave together light in and of moving imagery while questioning the material tensions of mediated illumination.

The work in this exhibition emerges through a research journey, undertaken between 2014-17 as part of a practice-led PhD that has been supported by the Digital Cultures Research Centre at the University of the West of England and the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s 3d3 Consortium.
