Hole Light, 2015
Paul Cocksedge explains: Few things exude more of a sense of mystery than a hole. It is at once an absence and a presence, an entrance and an exit, the trace of an event frozen in time and space. Here, a hole has been cut into a suspended block of acrylic and its edges glow from an invisible light source. Without the edge the light would dissipate and there would be nothing. It is only the presence of the hole that releases the light.
