Classroom Lightbox

Using a light-box is inspired by the media advertising to depict the separation of beauty and the beauty myth of women in today's generation. The huge interest generated from this work has encouraged me to continue exploring this medium and create further pieces. A truly captivating and striking piece with the use of negative and positive light with hopes to stand out from the rest of pieces. The photographic image has always interested me in terms of how the perspectives of an image changes how one can view the same object in different ways. The definition of an image never stays the same. Negative space is as important in my design as the visual elements. One of the reasons why I feel in love with photography is the way light and shade creates the forms, and also because it all happens very quickly. The play of depth of field, in and out of focus, creates other issues that are challenging. Each work is a combination of the relationship of at least two images with textures and color. A few of the images are left in black, and color is added as an emotional effect. Each image is interesting in itself The smoke along with the image but the relationship of the images create the real statement. "The otherness" I call the feeling when one fantasizes and one cannot touch or feel but are left with an often-indescribable mood. This indefinable, ephemeral mood is what I seek to express. The subject matter often changes but this feeling and a sense of movement is always prevalent in my work. The subject matter of my work usually deals with the human physical and psychological issues of media, society, growth and change.

The use of a light-box stems from Jeff Glass; His signature works are large transparencies mounted on light boxes; he conceived this format when he saw back-lit advertisements at bus stops during a trip between Spain and London. Since the mid-1990s, Wall has also made large scale black and white photographs. The use of a light-box with intention to display something meaningful and with depth beautifully amplifies the powerful wash of light and shadow which itself belies the light-box.
