Dark Precursor explores the materiality of light. Light acts as a force of physical transformation. It contains energy that affects the growth or deterioration of geological, plant and animal bodies. When it is gathered at a high intensity its effect on matter is observable. The piece employs three forms that harness the generative potential of light: laser cutting, laser engraving and holography. By utilizing these media, Dark Precursor demonstrates material’s capacity to be transformed by energy.
