Diffract You, installation, 2014

In a small dark room, a light projection of a penrose pattern sits on top of a larger penrose tessellation of polycarbonate mirrors attached to a wall. The projection diffracts the pattern off the mirrors onto the opposite wall generating a distortion of organic forms. These forms still retain some structure from the pattern of origin and diffract again from another set of polycarbonate penrose rhombuses attached to that opposite wall. The final forms retain no rigid pattern having a sense of organic and spontaneity.

The waves of light create a system of interference which demonstrates the path of pattern as it changes from recognizable order to unpredictable formless forms.
