Here, light is recognised by several sharp-ended pieces of wood. The use of light and dark is for the sake of contrast – recognition of light in darkness highlights that sometimes perception is not easy. The varying vertices of the sculptures point to the light, which constructs as an object expressing the need for recognition of self. Social and individual identity is formed when we throw light on the matter, either internally or externally, and our generation is keen to explore questions around identity and belonging. This artwork aims to abstractly represent this longing for insightful answers to the core questions we have as a generation.
