Documentation of a digital video sculpture from the artist’s “De Luce [On Light]” series. materials: digital video of indeterminate duration, a 7-inch video screen, re-purposed plastic, 12″ x 12″ x 12.” Light-struck film emulsion and unruly forces of nature intermingle in a diminutive replica of a greenhouse reminiscent of a child’s dollhouse. Unfamiliar color and light sweep into and literally illuminate vegetative subjects to supply visible evidence of a surreptitious conspiracy between the artist, her materials, and photochemical occurrences. The digital video loops endlessly like events in the natural world even while they are contained in a structure designed for human dominance over Mother Nature.
Original title Luminous Greenhouse
