Light is made up of different wavelengths, some of which we can see. Our eyes translate these waves into colour. In my practice I deconstruct colour by splitting it up using prisms, in a bid to understand the way it’s built up by our eyes and brain. I work from a certain distrust towards reality, because I can only deal with the one I see myself. By taking colours apart, layering them through projections and building them back up, I can question this visible reality and expose its seemingly unquestionable facts. I do this also to emphasize the subjective nature of colour vision.
