Ephemeral Rays: A Spectacular Installation Featuring Hundreds of Burnt Out Light Bulbs

Originally installed at Chatham Historic Dockyard, Charlotte Smith's "Ephemeral Rays" is a site-specific installation consisting of hundred of burnt out light bulbs, dust and fishing line reflecting the fleeting rays of light beaming through a window of the Galvanising Shop. Playing with reflections and shadows, the light bulbs act as vessels of light, guiding the eye around the space. Speaking about her work Charlotte says, “The relationship between place and space is of huge interest. I enjoy the ephemeral characteristic of site-specific working, the work becomes more experiential, similar to the wonder of light and the art lives on in the memories of those who experienced it”
