Fibre Optic/Radiant Light - 2 Maquette
2015
Artist RegionOntario
DescriptionThis piece by Lizz Aston is a maquette, or artist’s model, for a work that will be installed as a public artwork on the fifth floor of the Learning Resource Commons at Humber North campus. Created from dichroic film, this work is both reflective and iridescent and shifts colours as the light in the gallery changes throughout the day or with our own movements around it. By combining this innovative industrial material with long-standing domestic practices, such as lace-making, Aston reinvents the material as one that is delicate and woven with human histories.
