Baggage Light

Baggage Light

“Baggage Light” 2004, Installation in Between Light & Dark at Artspace Gallery Hartford CT


“Baggage Light” exemplifies glimpsing the hidden in fractions of time. It continues a focus of secrets and life hidden, referencing the baggage we carry. The room is dark, work illuminated by bare bulbs flicking on-and- off at intervals. “Baggage Light” is an outgrowth of my first room-size installation “La Longue Durée (A long moment)” at Pinnacle Gallery at Savannah College of Art And Design. Longue Durée, or long term, is an approach to history pioneered by the Annales School in France. It’s a focus on events that occur imperceptibly over long periods of time, on the slowly changing relationships between people and the world with an emphasis on social themes rather than political or diplomatic.
