'Thread'

“I was uncertain of what it was about? Exploding or imploding? About something and nothing at the same time”.

“To begin there was nothing there and then the whole thing opened up’

Thread is a line drawing constructed with fibre optics sanded in situ to create a 3 dimensional form. Programmed LEDs illuminate sections of the fine architecture building up and fading away into space. It is fine like dust in sunlight appearing slowly to the viewer as their eyes get used to the dark. Thread was developed as part of the series Melt, Splinter and Thread over a two year studio practice and research period with the assistance of Artist Programmer Dave Everit, Artist Programmer Sean Clark and Dr Graeme Stuart and Creative technologist Luke Woodbury.
