Light is charged with creation. With the elemental. Volcanoes spewing molten rocks. The rising slant of a new day. The aloof light of a star. The bioluminescence of a firefly. Inspired by a moment of sublime disbelief on the edge of a Balinese rice paddy on the rim of a volcano, Already Elsewhere is an immersive light and sound installation by Adelaide-based artist Geoff Cobham that uses light to transform space and alter perception.
Cobham is an award-winning artist and designer whose extensive practice has seen him work with many of Australia’s top choreographers and allowed him to explore for more than 30 years, endless combinations of colour, angle, intensity, and movement of light. In Already Elsewhere, he harnesses this elemental form and offers it transfigured, providing an arresting display which invites each audience member to experience light spatially, poetically and subjectively.
