Sunlight as Mediated by an Object

Geetha Pedapati

This object is a light sculpture and low resolution video piece focused on capturing skylight. Light becomes a medium for emotional telepresence.


Every morning I can watch the sunrise from my apartment window without actually seeing the sun. In New York, it’s rare to be able to see the evening or morning sun. Instead, we watch the colors and reflections on the buildings slowly shift through the day. This piece attempts to capture and recreate these subtleties of natural daylight in a digital display. Equipped with an LED display and a wireless camera, it focuses the viewer on a displaced patch of sky. This surreal window invites quiet contemplation. It examines how light and space are perceived and seeks to find similarities, if any, between the subtleties of natural and constructed light.
