UNSW Art & Design academic and graduate Joanne Handley is exhibiting work in Vivid Path To The Future at the Seymour Centre, University of Sydney, as part of Sydney Vivid Light Festival.
Handley’s light installation 21 Breaths, which takes it’s name from Tibetan yogic practice, combines neon and argon gas in an intensely coloured glass ladder designed around the seven key chakras and their corresponding frequency in the visible spectrum.
The work draws upon the idea that our bodies are, quite literally, an extraordinary universe of particle waves. Bodily incarnations of light and biophotonic generators whose intentions are capable of modulating fundamental processes within cell-to-cell communication. Amplifiers of electrical and magnetic energy in flux with the existential human experience.
21 Breaths was selected as the feature lightwork for the official 2015 Vivid Media Launch at Sydney Opera House and as a finalist in the 2015 Paramor Prize: Art + Innovation.
The installation can be viewed at The Seymour Centre from May 25 - June 8 alongside a Vivid Music program including New Wave Sound, live performances and an interactive installation called Musify + Gamify that looks at contemporary perspectives on music and game play. See more here.
