Description
'Between Dimensions' aims to confuse the viewer as to where the sculpture ends and its shadow begins. Exploring the idea of dimensionality, it is one part inspired by Plato's Analogy of the cave in 'The Republic' and the question regarding our perception of reality, and the other part inspired by Rudolf Steiner's proposition that our consciousness 'resides' in higher dimensions. I want to draw parallels between the materiality of an object and it's non-physical shadow, with that of our physical bodies and our non-physical consciousness. Each cannot exist without the other.

This sculpture is suspended from the ceiling and against a wall, with a strong directional light source. In this case, an LED torch was used in a semi-darkened space to cast distinct shadows. However, there is scope to explore the location and length of the shadows, i.e. shadows can be cast on the floor or on the ceiling too, thereby extending the reach of the sculpture without expanding it physically.
