Light has the unique ability to connect and translate objects interdimensionally. Humans cannot perceive anything outside of the 3rd dimension apart from the 2-dimensional presence or absence of light on a surface. It is impossible to comprehend the 4th dimension, but the idea of it fascinates me. The suspended element is the 3D shadow of a 4D hypercube that is then translated into a 2D shadow using light. These separate objects, which exist in different dimensions, are directly related to each other. Exploring the relationship between the 2nd and 3rd dimensions begins to explain the connection between the 4th dimension and our 3-dimensional reality. When viewing this work, try to prevent your mind from interpreting the 2D shadow as 3-dimensional. Challenge yourself to view the 2D and 3D elements as separate objects, then observe their interaction. Materials: Steel, Cree XM-L2 LED, Fishing Line
