Description

Spencer Finch's artistic practice investigates the intersection between lived visual experience and scientific research. In works like "Betelgeuse", he uses a colorimeter a device that measures the intensity of color to record light seen in the natural world and replicate its hue and luminosity in sculptural form. In doing so, Finch not only examines how we see, but also probes questions surrounding memory, time, and perception. A monumental light sculpture, "Betelgeuse's" form evokes an explosive celestial object and emits the same light reading as its eponymous star the second brightest in the Orion constellation.
