Rising to the Occasion / Wax on glass with light / 20 x 18 in.

All that changes in this video is light.

This interactive painting is made with wax on glass and lit from in both front and behind. Maximizing the translucent quality of wax, backlighting reveals a completely different, but related, image. Lights fluctuate between the two states, triggered by a motion sensor when the viewer engages.
