In this exhibition, we use a new perspective to explain the concept: E(light), h=human, v=vision.
Light, life and space have been involved together for millennium since ancient civilizations.
Light reflects life is changing. Without light, we would be in darkness; without light, we would not realize time is passing away, without light, we would not see anything clearly.
The sanctity of light is one of the most ancient and persistent themes within sacred art and architecture – a concept associated with the cultural structure and the religious ritual of Stonehenge, the Egyptian pyramids, and Mayan as well as Aztec civilizations. Human being needs to find a way to worship the power that they believe coming from their gods. And light has a particular materiality, in connecting life to the touch of an unknown field.
During past decades up until now, contemporary artists have used and are using light as a medium in their art making. Artist not only integrates light and space to create a unique worship-space for engaging the viewer to have an immersive experience of the power of light, but also for the viewer to concentrate on exploring and meditating the connecting between life and light in the particular space. Such as James Turrell’s monumental The Roden Crater Project, Nancy Holt’s Sun Tunnels and Olafur Eliasson’s The Weather Project.
In this 5Art Space project, I investigate using light to create a unique space that leads the viewers to experience the connection between light and themselves.
