W-inter presented an interplay between light, geometric line and architecture in an immersive, futuristic form of cyberspace. Featuring a field of illuminated linear structures, this large-scale light installation responded to the gallery site and extended the architecture of the space through line. The work existed as a hypnotic landscape of light, line and object within the gallery, through the replication of interconnected linear masts. W-inter created an immersive experience for viewers, reflecting a minimal and otherworldly space derived from the architecture of the historic Metro Arts building and gallery – considering the site in its past, present and future states.
