To arrive in this 21st Century we have shored up our safety and stability with real and conceptual walls, barriers and boundaries. These lines, boundaries and borders are obvious and apparent, hidden, physical and conceptual, a reason or an excuse, a dismissal and an act of separation. Those who define and control barriers cross with little thought or care but as we and the world move will the comfort of this perceived control be our undoing?
Threshold is light art work that draws attention to the water’s edge on the launch ramp at the Old Lifeboat House. A camera tracks the water’s edge this image is processed and projected as an overlay, the work creates an abstract interplay of light with a storm like and chaotic animation that overwrites and manipulates the threshold at this crossing place.
