Deborah Smith 'Flicker Flicker'
Still images of Flicker
Projection on wall (8x12)
The idea of this piece came from the unawareness of the flickering of light that occurs in the corner of your eye, like when you pass a fence on a sunny day or the light in your eye after a flash of a camera.
With this basic thought and the basic materials, I am challenging the notions of display and enhaning that which is usually taken for granted, this piece delicately reintroduces the elements of the everyday and allows a moment of reflection.
