"Sea Storm" Kinetic (moving) Backlit Collage. 6 x 21 x 6" DC power, motor, lights
BACKLIT COLLAGE LIGHTBOXES
SUSANNA & MARK HELMAN
Made using hundreds of small lights and custom electronics, these glossy, translucent static and kinetic backlit collages explore how weather and climate changes impact various panoramic land and seascapes beginning in 2008.
The natural elements fog, rain, sunshine, wind and snow are visually translated using unconventional materials; paper and light. Inspired by Op Art and sculpture from the Bauhaus movement, these hand-made, back-lit lightboxes use hundreds of lights, each one hand-soldered to create a custom light panel, which are best displayed in a dark room. Then, using paper, colored plastic and, in some cases, motors, Susanna and Mark explore and visually translate a range of elements such as fog, rain, sunshine, wind and snow.
