Title: Consisting of ether

Abstract: Consisting of Ether is a light installation that uses phosphoresce and mirrors to create the illusion of infinity. Conceptually, it grapples with the understanding of knowledge that Art gives, and challenges viewers to investigate the oscillation between reality and perception, the phenomena and the noumena. This project seeks to create a sensory experience for the viewers that would overwhelm them as they see the infinity space that the mirrors create. However, when they begin to contemplate the sublime moment, the illusion immediately shatters, leaving the viewers with a cognitive inquiry about reality. It investigates the ethereal beauty that an object contains, not only in the form of it, but also in the conception. It is about bringing the audience through an event that engages not only their eyes but also their minds to create the wonder about knowledge that Art could give.
