My Journey Sculpting with Light

@ VOL 20 ON APR 18, 2014

Mark Chai's art is part of his spiritual journey. He creates three-dimensional pieces that are organic, abstract and conceptual. His inspiration comes from his love for the ocean, fascination with the structures of exotic flora and fauna, and a growing awareness of his genealogy.

Shedding Light on Paradise

@ VOL 20 ON APR 18, 2014

Alison Beste's photographs explore the boundaries between the built and natural world using light effects on the ocean horizon. Light from cities, vessels, and beacons become powerful metaphors for the ways in which we interact, manage, and attempt to control the environment. In Hawaii, where expectations of an organic paradise collide with an often-manufactured landscape, Allison's work scrutinizes the tension between nature and artifice. Alison uses light to examine how constructs of nature and the artificial are interrelated, ambiguous, and mediated by culture.
