Installation

Collaboration with Vivy Phan, Connor Frew, and Connor Walden

"Effulgence" is brightness taken to the extreme. You may be dazzled by it, stunned by it, or even overcome by it. We cannot physically create something effulgent – in order to do that we would need to create a star or another sun. Instead, we created a space that can only be described ambiguously through words on the walls to reference its creation above the clouds. A video of us walking up and down the ladder lives in the space in order to show us going up above the clouds to work on the effulgent structure.


Below are close-ups to the text on the walls.


Here are photos to orient you to the original installation.
