This project is a study into the limit of the visible spectrum – where violet becomes ultraviolet, red becomes infrared and visible becomes invisible. This border-wavelength is a little different for everyone. Some might see a little further into the spectrum than others. For this project I am exploring our individual responses to colour on the border of our visible spectrum to see if it is possible to create a work “that everyone will see differently”. The viewing objects determine our differences in perception. With the information collected by the viewing objects, I am able to finish the final work.
