Monument to Dendur









1985-9O: lights, electronics, wood,
      spun glass, paint, software

The Temple of Dendur was transported from Egypt to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY. This piece was inspired by the temple's entrance portal. Images of ancient Egyptian gods appear and disappear, created by shadow mask projections which shine through the translucent spun glass surface.






Provenance:

1997 "The Graven Image," curated by Robert Costa, A Collective Intelligence Project, Union County College, Cranford, NJ

2004 "Haunted Maze," curated by Kathleen Laziza, MicroMuseum, Brooklyn, NY










Review:

". . . satiric wit. . . An artist called Flash Light gives us the wall piece, "Monument to Dendur," a mottled canvas portal that, when lit from behind, shows Egyptian tomb figures with the red sun of Ra above them . . . . . "

1997 The Star-Ledger, "The Graven Image," by Eileen Watkins, page 32 (February 14 - 20), Newark, NJ
