Gallery for the light installation series: "EMERGING WORLDS"

The illustrations in both these galleries have been developed for use in six-sided installations, lamps and coffee tables (see below) with 6 semi-translucent panels. They are printed on akryl, and mounted in the panels of the hexagonal casing with led lights behind the panels, giving the appearance of glass windows.They have been used in various exhibitions.

At the heart of this project is the beautiful and original book En Fabel by Ingelil Mitchell, published in 1991. The story is retold in music and verse, through 16 episodes, in videos created out of the drawings from the book, crafted and adapted to video use by Rowen Sivertsen.
