Primary explores the projection of primary colour across a fragmented, triangular landscape. Red, blue and green spotlights were used to cast light onto the panel’s protruding polygons, creating a 10-minute-long sequence of moving and overlapping colours across its surface.
“Visitors to the exhibition were presented with a long view of the piece, most thinking it was simply a 2D projection on the wall,” Talbot said. “On a closer look the three-dimensionality of the work became apparent and the depth of the polygons could be seen.”
“A completely dark space with light radiating off the piece and a subtle soundscape created a very deliberate mood,” Talbot said. “People walked in talking but the gallery was quickly very quiet.”
