Humanity Lost: World Lights Mural No. 1 (Limited Edition of 3)
This museum-size mural stands 32 ft. high x 15 ft. wide. It is composed of 12 luminous clear plexiglass photographic images, set side by side, each one sized 8 ft. high x 5 ft. wide, with a thickness of 1/8” and mounted on White Sintra Backer. Each image was originally printed from a 35mm color transparency. Lit by proscenium lighting, they are displayed as epic tapestries, mounted on invisible aluminum scaffolding.
In visual terms, it's meant to comment on the domination of electric, pulsing commercialism in the lives of individuals today, and how the spiritualism of individuals has been overshadowed, if not lost, in the effervescent, midnight glow of the penetrating footlights and alluring highlights of global mercantilism.
The foreground image of the observer is meant to demonstrate scale only and is not a part of the overall photographic statement. However, because the mural will be displayed in a darkened museum room to create maximum visual vibrancy, viewers standing in the gallery before the large-scale murals, will serve to integrate themselves into the World Lights mural, adding their own silhouetted contribution to the statement of Humanity Lost--lost in and to the swirling global vortex of unstoppable consumerism.
To fully appreciate the impact of these images as they will be displayed, kindly zoom into the mural to get a true sense of how these large-scale images will impact the viewer's experience.
