Ultraviolet Thread Installation

Here are several projects about Lighting and Space.

David Ogle’s installations seem to glow right out of the space they effeminate from.  His work is mainly constructed with thread illuminated ultraviolet light.  However, Ogle’s installations are not only built of the thread, but the space they emphasize and the light itself.  Underscoring this Ogle says:

“ Much of my work to date has dealt with exploring notions of materiality, of permanence and of the perception of objects in space. Using light as a sculptural medium, my work is innately ephemeral.”

Korean artist Jeongmoon Choi uses surprisingly simple materials to create installations that appear to be pulled off the computer screen.  Simply using thread and UV lights Jeongmoon illuminates complex geometric patterns.  The arranged thread patterns glow against the dark space at times resembling three dimensional plans.  Her installations explore the gallery space, both literally and conceptually.  Glowing angles bounce off walls and ceilings  emphasizing an architectural space that typically tries to not attract notice.

I think these artworks are showing good examples how lightings and simple materials can create a new spatial possiblities.
