Researchers estimate that the human eye can distinguish around one million different colours. Yet, there are thought to be an infinite amount of varieties beyond the visible spectrum. Gillian Hobson operates at the interface of the digital and analogue, creating experiential works that consider the potential of light for sustenance and renewal. These works reimagine stained glass for the 21st century, with moving-image projections that combine light rays from natural and artificial sources. Radiance Vertex uses mirrors, reflection and transparent materials to fill public spaces with luminous fragments of colour.
