Thicket, a new piece by Meghan Reynard, developed from a series of research questions on the interaction between daylight and the environment. The research aims to speculate on how we “read” or interpret daylight and the passage of time depending on interactions between daylight and surrounding physical and built environments.
The project explores tension and potential between immaterial light and physical matter, introducing questions on the significance of physical structure versus non-physical phenomena in the production of the work. The work itself blurs the boundaries between tangible and intangible. In viewing the work, the static structure appears to alternate between physical and non-physical, at times appearing solid, and at other times blending in with its surroundings, as moving shadows push forward and appear as tangible, physical form.
