A mysterious piece, sober in tone, that reflects light intensely into a room and yet somehow declines to reflect things...
Lumâ’ is the plural of lam’a: "gleam, flash, sparkle, glitter". The 144 words, laser-cut in stainless steel, are depolished to reflect light better, as opposed to forms (as a mirror would). They are mounted at different angles to the surface, so that they don’t all reflect uniformly, but with the scintillating effect expressed by the word — particularly when the viewer is moving past the piece.
Stainless steel, laser-cut, and acrylic on mount board, assembled on wood.
