Installed earlier this summer at the Chatham Historic Dockyard, Ephemeral Rays is a new work by artist Charlotte Smith. The piece consists of several hundred lights on filaments that fill a large window of a galvanizing shop. Of the work she shares:
Originally installed at Chatham Historic Dockyard, Ephemeral Rays depicted the volume of a fleeting ray of light beaming through a window of the Galvanising Shop. Reinstalled at Turner Contemporary the work evolved into a new form; drawing on the stunning expanse of sea and sky, the infinite horizon line was the focal point of the composition.
