Embracing the Unknown is a light installation comprising a tube shaped tunnel with a spotlight at one end and a gate printed onto transparent film at the other end. It is symbolic of light cone relativity for the feeling of physically experiencing this work goes beyond what physical documentation may convey. The depth of the tube and the illusion of distance created between the gate and the light is far greater than what is expected from the size of the tube. Thus, the work is an illusion in itself analogically suggesting relative spatiotemporal continuity and that which is phenomenal sensation or epiphenomenon of space and time - differentiation between time and timelessness and between space and spacelessness.
Embracing the Unknown was shown in studio criticism at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London, UK
