Light defines and redefines boundaries as we flock to it like moths. In the absence of other visual clues, points of light in a blank field are iconic, maplike: they re-orient and determine our sense of location, with their own distinct structure and points of reference.
UNTITLED is a holographic recording of not an object or person, but an experiment in capturing light in itself,
reflected internally many times, and refocused in space.
The piece is lit with red and green lasers at a mere 5 mW each.  Their wavelength relates to our interpretation of color; a laser contains purely monochromatic, single wavelength light. Although both lasers are the same intensity, the green is dominant: the spectral response of the eye is not equally distributed; our eyes respond to green more than red.
