The Infinite Loops of Iván Navarro’s Light Sculptures

by Danny OldaPosted on

Chilean artist Iván Navarro creates sculptures that often make use of common objects or, as the pieces featured here, electricity and light.  Many of Navarro’s sculptures use neon or fluorescent lighting in conjunction with one-way mirrors.  The pairing creates an infinite line of reflections that stretch off into darkness, creating the illusion of an endless tunnel or hall.  The effect is frequently unsettling and corresponds to the socio-political issues behind much of his work.  They can serve as comments on the recent history of dictatorship in his own country and a personal working out of memories of that period.
