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.
"In between these tall buildings I can wander around, people pass me from one destination to next. From the past to the future. While the landscape revolves its perspectives around them. I'm not focussed on where I'm going. Instead I look at how this landscape, a landscape that is set in stone, keeps changing. and try to understand my fascination for these changing perspectives. A city is chaotic, but 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."
