Poetry of Light

Inspired by the sentence “I could reach out and grab it” from the documentary College Behind Bars and by Fendrick Edwin Church’s painting, The Icebergs, this project caught the poetic reading of atmosphere and light by juxtaposing forms of icebergs. With the position, depth, and material, the space creates light radiation by introducing the sunlight to the surface both on the interior and exterior, gleaming and suffusing on various frequencies at different times of the day. The project silently implies its immense presence through the measured space of illumination, though small in size. Through literal interpretation of “reach out and grab it”, it establishes a visual presence and reaches a wider audience.
