This work was originally inspired by the collaboration between Gerhard Richter and composer Steve Reich “Patterns”. In this particular work the painters image is continually deconstructed until it reaches a state of the sublime. In a similar manner after creating and translating a series of interviews into data fields, I set about to create a sequence of further deconstruction and spatial abstraction. By utilising a series of digital cameras in space and imbuing the environment with a sense of speed I arrived at this point. Data points accelerated moving in micro space expanded into vistas of colour volumes.

 

Liminal beings are those that cannot easily be placed into a single category of existence. Liminal beings are naturally ambiguous, challenging the cultural networks of social classification. The work an evolution of data based personas which been further abstracted into soft light colour fields. The movement and colour echoing what they once where, now dissolved into amorphous fields colour and light.

In anthropology, liminality, meaning "a threshold" is the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs in the middle stage of a rite of passage, when participants no longer hold their pre-ritual status but have not yet begun the transition to the status they will hold when the rite is complete. During a rite's liminal stage, participants "stand at the threshold” between their previous way of structuring their identity, time, or community, and a new way, which completing the rite establishes.
