A Light Codetta

2016

A light-box with changing coloured lights playing over a a painted colour spectrum.

 

This piece is certainly a Coda to AMA's main work, his 'Light Organ' of 1968 - 1970. Certainly, this work is slight in concept, and for this reason it is called a Light Codetta. Formalised areas containing varying colours have always fascinated AMA. In a way, looking at such a thing relates to the everyday experience of naturally looking at the movement of everyday life, but it can be much, much slower - a remarkably soothing experience.
