VideoAurora by Keegan Luttrell

Aurora, 2013

Keegan Luttrell

This video suggests celestial phenomena, as if you’re looking out the window of a vessel traveling through space. It’s actually a constructed environment created by dust particles and light. Experimenting with timing and a sense of illusion, the artist investigates ideas of reality versus fabrication. Luttrell also questions our perception of the vast universe and our relationship with the unknown. By using dust particles as her subject, she slyly plays with the idea that humanity is a speck of dust in comparison to the vastness of the cosmos.
