Magic Hours is a series of objects that explore concepts of the California Light and Space Movement. Characterized by a focus on perpetual phenomena, such as light, resin, and cast acrylic, Light and Space installations are often conditioned by their surroundings. Whether by directing the flow of natural light, embedding artificial light within objects or architecture, or by playing with light through the use of transparent, translucent, or reflective materials, the artist made the spectator’s experience of light and other sensory phenomena under specific conditions the focus of their work.
In this iteration, marble tile, acrylic, and neodymium magnets create stacking tabletop objects. The objects have active and dormant periods dependent upon the space they are placed in and the angle of direct light hitting them throughout the day. The side of the object that casts a shadow also casts a color glow.
