Dan Davis : Sodium Vapour Night Light

22 Jun 2013–3 Aug 2013


The notion of a Sodium Vapour Night Light, came about when the artist arrived home late one night after a long day in the studio. His bedroom window was permeated with a deep orange glow emanating from the streetlights below. The white blinds in the window obscured full view and the condensation on the glass refracted the light in a pleasingly hellish vision. Davis re-creates this in the gallery, as its’ reminiscent of how film set windows were often never really windows to the outside, but windows to a re-creation of the outside.
