The Narrative of Sunlight
‘The Narrative of Sunlight’ is a series of kinetic light installations created by Ellis Holman and reflect on her fascination for the behaviour of sunlight around us. The series consists out of three separate light installations that come from the same narrative. The goal of the work is to create a contemporary form of escapism inspired by the optical effects of sunlight. Creating a wondering moment of seeing something beautiful but also the curiosity of how it is created. Pieces that make you think but also let you return to a moment of timelessness and give you a reminder to take a deep breath. A work that gives the viewer an opportunity to escape.
"When I created the first piece people thought it was an ode to the forest, but it was about the sunlight. So, I wanted to create a piece inspired by a different landscape that had the same values. Chapter N.2 is about the urban landscape. The opposite of nature, a landscape that is set in stone but because we navigate through it, it keeps changing with light and shadows moving around us. I want to show that something chaotic can also be calming, and how it can draw you in and give you a feeling of escaping."
