Lindsay Packer : two kinetic, light-based installations

"Using popular printed imagery, found objects, light, toys and text, I investigate the line between what we know and what we suspect about the things we see. Inspired by a year of study and travel in India, my most recent body of work (video) focuses on translation, communication and first encounters. Informed by fairy tales, science textbooks and language primers, my paintings, collages and light-based installations examine entry-level curiosity. Children, animals, and other ‘beginners’ attempt to understand the world, each other, difference. In my work, complex structures, simple mechanics and elementary linguistic, scientific and visual vocabularies help question the relationship between object and shadow, cause and effect, original and translation."
