Danielle Heath - This Museum is a Boat

Lighthouses are categorised as ships. This artwork is a light installation inside the museum, making it into a lighthouse. Through this lighthouse the museum is transformed to become a boat, fulfilling the building's dream. The installation employs a slow pulsing light, reminiscent of a wave advancing and retreating. The light increases with intensity and expands amongst the museum's objects. The light maps the space, including the skin of the viewer, flooding them in illumination. This connects to a series of artworks where the artist has been using light to embody haptic responses.
