Torrent is a light-producing sculpture from a series that investigates visual representations of fire, water, structure, and atmosphere to offer poetic glimpses of nature's entropic and restorative processes.
Torrent produces images of fast-moving spherical bodies. Within the machine's projection, colliding shapes implode, expand and travel in concert from ceiling to floor and back again, suggesting both the movements of large celestial bodies and the collisions of microscopic particles. The production of heat and energy are the unequivocal result of these collisions, therefore suggesting the innate intelligence of all matter.
