"In this video installation I have explored the fascination of the medium and its magical light. The work is a meditation on magnetism, the laws of attraction and repulsion, of relationship and manipulation. The viewer can electromagnetically deflect the line of light compressed into a narrow line by the magnetic pendulum swinging above it, a gently modulated wave motion is created. The work has changed over the years in engagement with the spaces: a source, a mirror, an oracle."
