Stretching Light aims to capture the movement of the body to a moment. Rendering movement as material in itself allows the gesture to inhabit space, beyond its brief conception - stretching the light of which the body momentarily disrupts.

The form was generated through the motion capture of less than a second of a dancers movement.

The piece was installed as part of LUX 2017 and was created in collaboration with Samuel Lewis.
