12 OHPs and Coloured lighting gels
Halo is one in a series of light installations engaging with the anthropomorphic qualities of obsolete mechanical technologies.
A composition of 12 overhead projectors arranged in a circle, this configuration generates three rings of light: one of mainly white light emanating from the bodies of the projectors; another of 12 jewel-like spots of colour as seen in the faces of the projectors and the third, a horizontal strip of multi-coloured light cast just above the heads of the projectors.
With its warmth, breath-like air currents and gentle hum the circle takes on human form – a choral ensemble perhaps. By combining the individual groups of colour into a single halo the work celebrates the power of the collective spirit.
