The wave that ripples across the glass of Light Wave is a true sine-wave. Gravity and kinetic energy engage in a state of equilibrium enabling the ninety-five ‘blades’ of glass, weighing almost half a ton, to be set in motion by a small motor, the equivalent of a single domestic light bulb. Wilkinson also investigates the ambiguous nature of matter; the glass in Light Wave appears to be molten, inviting us to reflect on the paradoxical nature of glass as an amorphous solid.
Light Wave was installed from Dec 2008 to Feb 2009 in The Economist Plaza, St James London curated by The Contemporary Art Society and Kinetica Museum. It was also exhibited at The 2009 Kinetica Art Fair at P3, Marylebone Road, London and Jeju Museum of Art, S. Korea. In 2010 it toured the festivals: Glastonbury, Secret Garden and Waltham Forest Produced by Up Projects and Shangri-La.
