Clean lines, clear forms and shifting color. Craig Dorety utilizes LED technology and custom firmware to build what could be the futuristic paintings of a utopian society. Wall mounted and composed of layered planes, the structural face of these objects serves as the support upon which embedded LED lighting reflects the illuminated content of each piece. By deconstructing digital imagery mined from a range of sources Dorety recomposes something as simple as a static photo of a bay area sunset into an experience of changing colors over time, similar to the way in which music functions as a composition of sequential sounds. This visual effect defies the possibility of a fixed reading, and demands that viewers remain in the present moment of the work. The reward of their attention is a mesmerizing ebb and flow of light coalescing into impermanent crescendos of beauty that constantly fade into the next as each moment of time is lost to history.
