Since moving to Hawaii, I have been inspired by the interaction between light and water – how light bends as it passes through water, how the water distorts the light. When light reflects off the surface of the water it gives the appearance of having 3 dimensions and becomes what I like to think of as a “light sculpture.” I love these moments when elements we think of as having no substance or shape transform into something unexpected. The whirlpool vortex maintains its shape because of the way water and gravity interact. The light becomes a moving sculpture as it is reflected and refracted by the dynamics of the fluid. This type of interaction happens all around us and if we pay attention to these moments we become attuned to the possibility of light as not just photons of energy from the sun but as a kind of visual poetry, a sculpture that has no substance.
