“DITHER is a two part installation that explores the body as form. Through our body we interact with the world. It gives us a voice, our senses and an ability to connect with others, but in a digital age where we can create our own virtual bodies and identities – what importance does the physical human body have today? It could be said that a vast number of people on this earth communicate to each other behind an avatar or a coded image [jpeg / png / gig ] via social media, email, messaging services or video. Do we hide behind our digital avatar and do these digital depictions become more valuable than our physical form when we try to create an identity for ourselves? This is what we are exploring for GLITCH 2016.”

‘Eidolon’ is an experimental piece, prompted by a fascination with the impact of light, colour and space on the senses. Using light as a medium to ‘dematerialise’ a large scale painting, an immersive colour field is created for the viewer. The reflected projection is layered, stretched and distorted by light, filling the space and moving the focus entirely to the enveloped viewer’s experience. It explores the complex psychological relationship between artworks and the viewer, in particular the role of memory and how once the perceived artwork passes the threshold of the senses it is created anew as each mind creates its own ‘eidolons’ or idealised versions, resulting in limitless, unique variations.www.helenmacmahon.com
