The Original Copy: Photography of Sculpture
1839 to Today
‘….the history of sculpture in, had become “the history of that which can be photographed.” Sculpture was among the first subjects to be treated in photography….the desire to document, collect, publicise and circulate objects that were not always portable. Through crop, focus, angle of view, degree of close up, and lighting…. photographers have not only interpretated sculpture but created stunning reinventions of it….’
Light installations cannot always be portable but can sometimes be dependent on environmental elements for example the sun or moon combined with materials the work becomes sculptural.
The light installation work together with the boxes has sculptural elements that give definition to the light being place within the boxes.
