Duality of Light

Duality of Light is an immersive environment to be experienced by one person at a time. This work completes a trilogy of interactive installations begun by Lynette Wallworth in 2004 with the piece Invisible by Night, followed by Evolution of Fearlessness in 2006.

Duality of Light allows each visitor to go on a unique and singular journey through a soundscape that challenges our perception of space. In navigating the installation environment visitors encounter others whose surprising presence reveals the Duality at the heart of the work.

Like all Wallworth’s work, Duality of Light utilises the most recent technological tools for immersion and interactivity in order to reveal some of the most fundamental states of human existence.

Lynette Wallworth is an Australian artist whose practice spans video installation, photography and short film, and whose work has been shown in festivals from Vienna to Sundance, from the Lincoln Center to the 2012 Cultural Olympiad. Her work movingly explores the relationship of between ourselves and nature, how we are made up of our physical and biological environments – even as we remake the world through our activities.
