reflection, refraction, projection

In her first year MFA exhibition, Ela Boyd’s light installations function as perceptual interfaces to explore apparition cognition. Using the tangible as an apparatus to catalyze the intangible, Boyd asserts the actuality of appearances. Holograms reflecting a series of adumbrated movements, projections that become windows into imagined worlds and light refractions giving the appearance of dimensionality, form an optical field that serves to collapse and expand the spatio-temporal experience. In spatializing the image and focusing on the decentralized character of the object, she posits a subject/object constellation wherein each node projects its image outward. Being-in-the-world is the inter-subjective in-between space, visible in the superimposition of projected images.
