Event Description

Originally, Spill (1 - Sunlight) was shown in an all white room, at the Vancouver Island School of Art, burnt out light bulbs a metaphor for sunlight spilling through an imaginary window. Illuminated from below by a single fluorescent source, the bulbs glowed preternaturally, light ricocheting off the walls.

In Spill (2 - Window), at the Slide Room Gallery (group show Analog) a real window in the gallery space became the focal point for the spill of bulbs' natural light and fluorescent played across the glass and out into the room.

In Spill (3 - Veil ), reconfigured for the 50/50, the light bulbs are suspended vertically, completely filling the window. Lit from below and within, light is cast through the bulbs, forming a curtain. Inside the gallery, framed companion pieces lure us into the gallery and behind the veil.

By turns meditative, playful and beautiful, the Spills are a light-hearted examination of perception.

Rebekah holds a BFA (Theatre) and an MFA (Visual Art) both from the University of Victoria.
