The invention of Nothingness No.1

The invention of Nothingness No.1 (2008)

Floodlight + emulsion paint on wall (2008) (The floodlight goes out every 2 minutes and the gallery light comes on for one second) (see below)

I am currently remaking  "The invention of Nothingness No.2" (2011) (not yet exhibited).  As in No.1, I am concerned with the invisible and death.  Painters are concerned with modifying the reflective qualities of a surface but largely take incident light as a given. Artists concerned with projections normally do the opposite.  In these works, and more clearly in No.2, the two are in a precise balance.)
