For the work I will produce for Testing Boundaries , I would like to create a sense of translucency through my use of materials.
From Latin translucere to shine through, from trans + lucere to shine
“The illusion of transparency. Here space appears as luminous, as intelligible, as giving action free rein. What happens in space lends a miraculous quality to thought, which becomes incarnate by means of a design [in both senses of the world.] The design serves as a mediator – itself of great fidelity – between mental activity.
The illusion of transparency goes hand in hand with a view of space as innocent, as free of traps or secret places.”
The Production of Space Henri Lefebvre
I would like to create a free flow between inside and outside in my work and through choosing the location of my work I hope to emphasise these thoughts. I am aware that the Church possesses complex symbolism and therefore am researching how other artists have worked within a religious space.
