Black Hole

The Sacred and Profane Festival has been happening for almost a decade at the Battery Steele (an old WWII army bunker) on Peaks Island, just off the coast of Portland, ME. For one day, artists gather together and transform the dark rooms into underground galleries and performance spaces.   

For this piece, I attempted to create a visual representation of the disparity between being a human and being a black hole. The human figure was lit up and a light emanated from the ghost-like figure onto a giant black circle across the room. I used white muslin and an acrylic fabric hardener, monofilament, black satin, and a marine-battery-powered 20 watt spotlight.
