Eidolon is an experimental piece, prompted by a fascination with the impact of light, colour and space on the senses. Using light as a medium to ‘dematerialise’ a large scale painting, an immersive colour field is created for the viewer. The reflected projection is layered, stretched and distorted by light, filling the space and moving the focus entirely to the enveloped viewer’s experience. It explores the complex psychological relationship between artworks and the viewer, in particular how once the perceived artwork passes the threshold of the senses it is created anew as each mind creates its own eidolons or idealised versions, resulting in limitless, unique variations.
