An innovative fusion between lighting design and sculpture, this new work captures static and translucent representations of organic matter such as liquids and flowers, in frozen ornamental glass resin form. Internal LED’s beautifully illuminate the complex facets and textures of each design from within.
Each sculpture is designed to complement and enhance the appearance of any interior, to provide a feature point for interest and discussion, whilst simultaneously casting illuminating lighting effects and beautiful shadows into the surrounding spaces.
Conceptually, i>Lab aims to create a clear 3D space for playful interactions between different types of light, each sculpture becomes a “mixer” of light in various ways, hence the titles of “Versus” - form versus light, and light versus light. The mixed translucency / mixed texture sculptures examine the perceptual realism of form by providing a three-dimensional internal physical playground where antithetic light interactions create beautiful spaces, behind, through, around, from, and within.
i>Lab (Alistair Burleigh) has been working primarily as a digital artist since 2005. He was one of the first people to develop and explore 360-degree video mapping systems as a creative medium, and between 2005-2008 was very active in installing ground breaking mapping artworks and 360 degree VJ installation’
Between 2009 and 2012 Alistair has been working in more commercial environments, with lead roles on large scale video mapping projects internationally for a range of exclusive clients.
In late 2012, with the increasing popularization and commercialization of video mapping, Alistair sought a new creative vehicle. He started exploring and developing this new concept of “Light Sculptures”, and coined the anagram of i>Lab (ali.b) to cover his new body of work for 2013 and onwards.
Based in a new workshop space on the Gloucester Road in Bristol UK near to the cultural centre of Stoke Croft, i>Lab is all set for new creative adventures in 2013 and beyond.
