Dark Matter(s)

Dark Matter(s) explores the interaction between light and colour in relation to darkness and the sensorial outcome generated through this amalgamation. This ethnographic research revolves around Kezia’s own personal phobia, nyctophobia, a fear of darkness. The study attempts to translate repulsive matter into an artefact whereby viewers may experience an interactive walkthrough which can only work in pitch darkness. The installation constitutes a dark enclosure with interactive sides through which light can be allowed to penetrate inside the enclosure. The final project responds to the overall knowledge and findings that emerge from the research and relates them to the researcher’s personal views and notions regarding this fear. The ethnographic study expanded on the interaction between light and colour, both as tools of communication as well as artistic media. The primary aim of this work is to encourage viewers to perceive darkness in a different light.
