‘Interactive’ was commissioned by 20/21 Visual Arts Centre to explore sight through light and interaction. The work was made from 19 light bulbs set within glass domes and positioned in a circular display, using a combination of four different colours: blue, yellow, red and green. Blue and yellow enhance clarity for visually impaired people while red and green reduce clarity, being less easily distinguished from other colours. A switchboard allowed visitors to the gallery to interact with the sculpture and select which colours were illuminated. Using a series of colour combinations and patterns, visitors could create their own light installation. The switchboard was not colour coded, so it was necessary for the viewer to play and experiment with the many patterns and colour combinations available.
