I was looking at the overview of Spencer Finch’s installations, and the thing that really struck me was the way that he fills space.
Moon Dust (Apollo 17), Spencer Finch
In many of the pieces that I work on, I find myself going smaller, and smaller, and using toothpicks or tweezers to move tiny little pieces. It give me a great feeling of expansion to view Finch’s work, filling a room.
Finch has been strongly influenced by Monet, and the study of light. He plays with light, color, and time to influence human perception. I think that the expansive spaces that hold his constructions certainly add to the feeling of being immersed.
