Danny Bracken - What You Can See From the Light
What You Can See From the Light (2010)
wood, multi channel sound, HD video projection
What You Can See From the Light is comprised of a high-definition video projection of two hands, hiding and revealing an overpowering light that glows behind them. As these hands interact, textures of sound envelop the viewer, and crescendo in relationship with these movements. Through subtle cuts, a floor to ceiling wooden wall reveals the grains of an enlarged fingerprint, echoing the intricacies and imagery of the projection, whose light filters through it.
